The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Logan Marshall-Green is set to star in sci-fi film Stem, written and to be directed by Leigh Whannell, the co-creator of the Saw and Insidious franchises.
The film is set in a near-future when technology controls nearly all aspects of life and centres on a technophobe who avenges his wife’s murder and his own paralysis-causing injury with the help of an experimental computer chip called Stem. Logan Marshall-Green will be playing the technophobe in question.
