Vancouver, B.C., April 17th, 2017 — Celebrated actor Magda Apanowicz lands the lead female role in the Smith Brothers’ sci-fi thriller, VOLITION. Apanowicz is well-known to sci-fi fans for her lead roles in both Caprica, of the Battlestar Galactica franchise, and Simon Barry’s Continuum. Apanowicz’s previous credits include meaty roles in Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno, The Butterfly Effect, and in dozens of other films and TV series, including a series regular role in ABC Studios’ Kyle XY.
Apanowicz will be playing against an already-robust cast of Adrian Glynn McMorran (The Revenant, Arrow), John Cassini (Se7en, The Game, Continuum), Frank Cassini (Good Fellas, Watchmen, The Bridge) and Bill Marchant (Chappie, Godzilla, Strange Empire).
Volition is directed by award-winning director, Tony Dean Smith, based on a screenplay written by Tony Dean Smith & Ryan W. Smith. It is a gritty sci-fi thriller, about a man, afflicted with clairvoyance, who tries to change his fate when a series of events leads to a vision of his own murder. The Smith Brothers have partnered with Paly Productions, Inc. to produce the film, with Principal Photography set for June 2017.
“I worked with Magda years ago and I have always seen her as just a brilliant actor. She’s a true talent, who exudes pure authenticity and raw grit,” says Tony Dean Smith, the film’s director, co-writer and co-producer. “She has a fierce energy that perfectly matches the role. We can’t wait to work with her!” says Ryan W. Smith, the film’s co-writer and co-producer.
