The Surrogates is a film that is being adapted by Disney from a five issue comic book series written by Robert Venditti with art by Brett Weldele. The movie is being directed by Jonathan Mostow who also made films such as 'U-571', and 'Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines'. It also stars the action film guy Bruce Willis as the main character Agent Greer.
The story is pretty interesting, it takes place in the year 2054, people are using surrogates (remote-controlled artificial bodies) to interact with each other. But someone is determined to return people to their old lives instead of living through proxies.
The brains behind the comic book was inspired to write the 'Surrogates' after reading about numerous individuals who lost their spouses or their jobs due their addiction to the internet and their online personas. In an interview, he says:
"It dawned on me that if you were somehow able to create a persona and send it out into the real world—where it could go to work for you, and run your errands, and so on—then you would never have to go back to being yourself."
Bruce Willis plays a cop who is forced to leave his home for the first time in years in order to investigate the murders of others’ surrogates.
This idea sounds really interesting, but from this little behind the scenes look and trailer, I'm not sure if it was executed very well. It looks like one of those low end mediocre action films, but maybe it will look better the closer they get to finishing it. Is it just me or does Bruce Willis look weird with that hairdo?
