EXCLUSIVE: Steven Strait (The Expanse) has been cast in Five Below, a high concept sci-fi thriller to be directed by Mike Le Han (Mrs. Peppercorn’s Magical Reading Room, Hellraiser: Origins).

While the film’s plot is being kept under wraps, it is said to be a new take on the meta-human sci-fi genre. Penned by Nick Brown, it will be the first in a franchise of low-budget, high-concept science-fiction films made by Le Han’s newly formed outfit, RedOne Studios. Liam Finn (Two Eyes, Midnight Movie) and Le Han are producing, with production scheduled for early summer. A sequel to Five Below is already in development.

Strait is represented by The Gersh Agency and Management 360.
