Director and actor circling sci-fi tale.

Writer/director Tarsem Singh (‘Mirror Mirror,’ ‘Immortals,’ ‘The Fall,’ ‘The Cell’) and ‘Safe House’ star Ryan Reynolds are said to be in talks to team for the sci-fi thriller ‘Selfless.’

“An extremely wealthy, elderly man dying from cancer undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers his consciousness to the body of a healthy young man but everything may not be as good as it seems when he starts to uncover the mystery of the body’s origins and the secret organization that will kill to keep its secrets.”

The script for the thriller comes from Spanish filmmakers Àlex and David Pastor (‘Carriers’).

‘Selfless’ will be co-produced by Endgame Entertainment’s James D. Stern and Peter Schlessel of FilmDistrict, along with Ram Bergman.
