Reel One Entertainment and Supremacy Films are releasing “blackhats,” an indie suspense thriller opening in a limited theatrical release starting today, October 23, for a week-long run at the Aurora Cineplex at 5100 Commerce Parkway, Roswell, GA.
The film, directed by LaRon Austin, is a cyber-thriller depicting a group of extreme gamers connected to an underground hacker community that is being hunted by a hired assassin and the FBI. Their only chance of survival, and to prevent a massive viral attack that could collapse America’s economic foundation, is through the help of a formerly hot-tempered bounty hunter, who now finds his new harmonious life as a Fugitive Recovery Agent threatened.
Errol Sadler (who also is producer), Ted Huckabee of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” Neko Parham of “Ant-Man” and “Doris Morgado” all star in the film, which the filmmakers describe as an indie mini blockbuster with the spirit and brilliance of the “Bourne” series, the charismatic flare of “Swordfish” and the impactful secret of “Usual Suspect” and “Se7en.”
Scripting was by Martin L. Kelley and Eddie Davis Singleton.
Producer Bennie Swint said of the film’s release, “I’m excited that our movie is part of October’s Cyber Awarness Month. Our movie is in line with some of the issues our society faces dealing with cyber crime, this is the must see movie of the fall season.”
