Branded: USN Grad Jamie Bradshaw's Sci-Fi Thriller Goes National Sept. 7

Posted By on Fri, Aug 17, 2012 at 8:26 AM

Anybody here a classmate of Jamie Bradshaw, University School of Nashville class of ’94? If so, whomp him on the back at the 20-year reunion. Bradshaw, who has a philosophy degree from Vassar and now lives in California, has his first feature coming out next month with national distribution through Roadside Attractions (which also distributed Steve Taylor's Blue Like Jazz).

It's a sci-fi thriller called Branded, and the trailer above suggests a clever They Live-like premise about corporate skullduggery and global conspiracy. (The plot apparently involves advertising as a kind of genetic enslavement.) The cast includes Max von Sydow, Leelee Sobieski, Jeffrey Tambor and Ed Stoppard, and Bradshaw co-wrote, co-produced and co-directed the Russia-filmed feature with Alexander Doulerain.

Branded got a nice boost in buzz earlier this summer when Wired.com's Underwire blog picked it as one of the 10 coolest things coming to this year's Comic-Con, alongside the likes of Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained and Peter Jackson's The Hobbit. The movie is set to open Sept. 7 at the Hollywood 27 and Opry Mills. We'll pass along more information in weeks to come. In the meantime, check out the movie's official website, where you can create your own QR code — at your own peril.
