SONGBIRD The first feature film to be made during COVID-19 in Los Angeles, and about the pandemic itself
Songbird, a film produced by Michael Bay about the pandemic of the new coronavirus won its first trailer. In the video, the virus managed to evolve and has no cure, which forces people to stay at home for four years. Check the preview.
The plot of the film takes place in 2024 and shows that the Covid-23 virus has undergone some mutations and the world is in its fourth year of social isolation. Infected Americans are torn from their homes and taken by force to quarantine camps known as Q-Zones, from where it is impossible to escape. In the midst of this dystopian landscape, a young adventurer, Nico (KJ Apa), who is immune to the deadly virus, finds hope and love with Sara (Sofia Carson), although his blockade prohibits them from physical contact. When it is believed that Sara has been infected, Nico runs desperately through the arid streets of Los Angeles in search of the only thing that can save her from prison.
Songbird was one of the first movies to be shot in Los Angeles after the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic were lifted. The cast also includes Craig Robinson, Bradley Whitford, Peter Stormare, Jenna Ortega, Alexandra Daddario, Paul Walter Hauser and Demi Moore.
Directed by Adam Mason, who signs the script alongside Simon Boyes (both from Hangman), Songbird has no confirmed release date yet.
