INDEPENDENT SUPERHERO FILM HEADS TO DALLAS DALLAS AND MESQUITE, TX — The award-winning independent film “The Posthuman Project” is making its way to Texas as part of its theatrical release. The film has played across the U.S. and in Europe to sold-out crowds as part of its festival circuit, winning ten awards, including three for best feature. The film will open its Texas theatrical debut at AMC Mesquite 30, 19919 Lyndon B Johnson Freeway, Mesquite, TX on Friday, Feb. 20 and continue a full run during the following week. In the film, Denny Burke is finally about to graduate high school. Senior year has been one bad thing after another: a broken leg, a broken heart, and — worst of all — a broken home. With four of his closest friends, Denny goes on one last rock-climbing trip to prove he’s ready to start his adult life… On their trip the five teens receive a genetic boost beyond anything they’d ever imagined. Denny’s soon faced with the first big decision of his adult life: does he give up these powers and stay a normal teenager, or does he keep them…and graduate from the human race? Emmy Award-winning director Kyle Roberts spearheaded his first-ever feature film with The Posthuman Project, which fused together his love of teen drama with superheroic adventure. “This film is tonally influenced by John Hughes movies of the 1980s with the energy of Marvel’s X-Men, on a micro budget” Roberts said. The film stars Kyle Whalen, Collin Place, Lindsay Sawyer, Alexandra Harris, Josh Bonzie, Jason Leyva and Rett Terrell. Producers include Vahid Farzaneh, Wendy Parker and Sha’ree Green; John Scamehorn is executive producer. The film was written by Matthew Price and Sterling Gates. >>> more THE POSTHUMAN PROJECT // HEADS TO DALLAS Leyva, who plays the film’s antagonist, William, heads L.I.P. Service in the DFW area, a full-service production company, theatrical company and artistic alliance. “The Posthuman Project was a treat, to be a super-villain was a bucket list role!” Leyva said. “Bringing The Posthuman Project to the Dallas area should inspire ALL local filmmakers to pursue their projects; it is great example of home grown talent achieving their dreams.” Sawyer, one of the film’s teen heroes, attended high school in Dallas and now lives in Los Angeles and is flying into town for the screenings. “Who would have thought our little independent film would get to your movie theatres!” Sawyer said. “I am so proud of The Posthuman Project and everything it represents. It is a unique story that embraces the power of friendship. It was so inspiring to work on a project with such passionate people. I also had a blast playing Gwen, a confident, fearless, strong young woman who will do anything to protect her friends. I am beyond thrilled it’s coming to my home town!” Kyle Roberts, Lindsay Sawyer and Jason Leyva will be in attendance at the films opening weekend in Dallas for Q&A’s after several of the screenings. They also plan to attended high schools and colleges in the area to teach them a little bit more about what all it takes to create a Superhero film on a micro budget. So far, critics are calling “The Posthuman Project” “An indie-epic” and “A superhero origin story a la John Hughes.” Tickets will be available thorough AMC’s Website, Fandango.com, Movietickets.com, and of course at the AMC Mesquite 30 Box Office.
