On television as well as in feature films and, sadly, the real world, there are murder investigations constantly being carried out by the authorities. What would you do, however, if you arrived at a crime scene only to discover that the victim was, in fact, you.
In the indie sci-fi thriller Omphalos, Edoardo Ballerini (Boardwalk Empire, Dinner Rush, The Sopranos) stars as Darius Lefaux, a private eye whose personal and professional lives are far from perfect. One day he is called in to investigate a murder and, much to his disbelief, the corpse turns out to be the spitting image of him.
Not long after, Darius begins recalling disturbing and confusing memories from his past. He also encounters more duplicates of himself. Both these occurrences are somehow connected to John Luka, an eccentric out-of-work juggler and old ally of Darius who was once involved in a time travel experiment that went awry. The two men eventually meet and together journey to “Omphalos,” a secret site they hope will resolve the conundrum that is unfolding around them.
The movie is being produced by Red Giant Media, a diverse and talented group of entertainment professionals that includes Independent Spirit Nominees Isen Robbins and Aimee Schoof (Brother to Brother, XX/XY), actor, writer and director Edoardo Ballerini, award-winning actor and writer as well as singer Greg Bennick, casting directors Sig de Miguel and Stephen Vincent (The Good Shepherd, Rabit Hole), award-winning director of photography (DOP) George Nicholas, line producer Ty Walker, production designer Laurie Krupp (Day Zero) and visual effects (VFX) artist Aidan Fraser (Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith).
