The official trailer for the much-anticipated sci-fi action-thriller “Abeyance” has dropped.
Written and directed by multi-award winner Harley Wallen, “Abeyance” is a story which presents a moral dilemma and asks, “If it were possible to transfer consciousness into a younger body, would the wealthy take advantage of this to ensure immortality?”
According to Wallen in an interview with Skeeter Murray on Skeeter Murray’s Reel Talk, “An Italian doctor is traveling to China to transfer a head from a body that is atrophying away to a brain dead body and they are going to switch the heads. This is actually happening. How far are they from downloading our consciousness? Then stick it into a new human and carry on. Death is a thing of the past. What would happen if the rich could do this and transfer their consciousness into a twenty-year-old body.”
This was the inspiration for “Abeyance.”
Here Harley Wallen talks with on-air host Skeeter Murray of Skeeter Murray’s Reel Talk about five movies which he will drop this coming year (2019).
