Brenton Thwaites Action Horror Starrer, OFFICE UPRISING, Taps Stunt Pro Lin Oeding To Helm

Alex Proyas's Gods Of Egypt didn't exactly bode well for actor Brenton Thwaites, but he still has prospects as we speak. February saw the news of his addition to the cast of the new zombie actioner, Office Uprising, for which Extraction helmer Steven C. Miller was tapped to direct.

Those duties have now switched to stunt professional multi-hyphenate, Lin Oeding (Ant-Man, The Equalizer, Olympus Has Fallen) following a small string of shortfilm and television show credits, including the stellar 2012 action short, Wake, NBC series Chicago P.D., and his upcoming directorial feature debut, Braven, starring Justice League/Aquaman star Jason Momoa. Oeding will direct from a script by Ian Shorr and Peter Gamble which joins Thwaites with actress Jane Levy and actor Ian Harding for the film's Alabama production in November.

At the world’s leading arms manufacturer, Ammutech, the board of directors tests a new energy drink, Volt, on their staff to see if they become more efficient workers. Unfortunately, the office is given the wrong formula and turn into hyper-aggressive homicidal maniacs. Desmond (Thwaites), the resident office slacker, must step up his game to save his office crush, Sam (Levy) and the rest of the planet from being infected or murdered by the growing horde of office zombies being led by his overzealous boss.
Thwaites's next appearance will be in Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales for which the first trailer is live ahead of its May 26, 2017 release. He is also executive producing Office Uprising next to co-EP Dan Spilo with Giulia Prenna, Jim Steele and Sean Lydiard producing while international sales banner, The Exchange, takes the film to the American Film Market next week.
