James Gunn might be busy putting the finishing touches to his Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014) sequel, but he still managed to find time to dust off and polish a script he wrote a few years ago, and hand it to Wolf Creek's (2005) Greg McLean to direct. The result is The Belko Experiment.
Set at a facility of the non-profit Belko company in South America which is mysteriously sealed off at the beginning of a work day, and its employees ordered to either kill each other or be killed themselves thanks to explosive charges implanted in their heads. This starts an escalation of violence, where we discover the true nature of each and every Belko employee. John C. McGinley (Scrubs) is socially awkward executive Wendell Dukes, a man who prefers to socialise with friends such as Barry Norris (Tony Goldwyn) and doesn't really enjoy being around his employees. Melonie Diaz (Fruitvale Station) plays Dany Wilkins, the new girl at the facility who is arguably about to experience the worst employee orientation of all time. And of course, there is a spot for Michael Rooker (Guardians Of The Galaxy), here as maintenance man Bud Melks.
With John Gallagher Jr. (10 Cloverfield Lane), Mikaela Hoover (Super) and Abraham Benrubi (The Finest Hours) also in the cast, The Belko Experiment will hit US screens on 17 March but has yet to secure a UK release.
