On behalf of Lionsgate, we are pleased to announce that principle photography is underway for REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA, a musical thriller starring Sarah Brightman, Anthony Head, Paris Hilton, Bill Moseley, Paul Sorvino, & Alexa Vega.
Darren Lynn Bousman (SAW II, SAW III, SAW IV) is directing from a screenplay by Terrence Zdunich and Darren Smith, co-creators of the original stage production of the same name upon which the film is based. Japanese musician, songwriter and composer Yoshiki Hayashi (better known as simply Yoshiki) is producing the film's soundtrack.
Set in the not-so-distant future, the production tells the story of an epidemic of organ failures that devastates the planet, killing tens of millions. As scientists feverishly make plans for a massive organ harvest program, a multi-billion dollar biotech company called GeneCo begins to manufacture salvation- for a price- offering simple payment plans to those lacking the necessary funds to purchase new body parts outright. But all financed organs are subject to default procedures, including repossession at the hand of the notorious organ repo men.
