Principal Photography Begins On Scott Adkins Sci-Fi Action-Thriller “Incoming”

Scott Adkins (Doctor Strange, The Expendables 2) is set to star in the new sci-fi action thriller INCOMING from prolific indie producers Benattar/Thomas Productions. Production is underway in Belgrade, Serbia.

XLrator Media will distribute the film in North America. Foreign sales will be handled by Premiere Entertainment Group. The film is financed by the UK’s Sharp House.

INCOMING marks the feature directorial debut of longtime Benattar/Thomas collaborator Eric “Z” Zaragoza and is written by Jorge Saralegui, based on an original story by Rick Benattar, Nigel Thomas and Jorge Saralegui.

The International Space Station is now a prison — the ultimate black site. No one’s getting out. And no one knows it’s there. But when the imprisoned terrorists take over the Station and turn it into a missile aimed at Moscow, only a shuttle pilot and a rookie doctor can stop them. Their task is complicated by a rogue CIA agent (Adkins) who has his own plans for the station and the terrorists within.

Producers are Rick Benattar and Nigel Thomas. Premiere’s Elias Axume also serves as producer as does Milos Dukelic of Belgrade production service company, Red Production. Executive producers are XLrator Media’s Barry Gordon and Michael Radiloff, and Sharp House’s Ian Sharp, Rebecca Joerin-Sharp and Emma Dutton.

Scott Adkins’ deal was negotiated by Joe Hutton of London’s BWH Agency and Brett Norensberg at Gersh.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Scott on this exciting new project. It’s a science fiction film but rooted in the realities of our world today. It explores familiar themes and looks at what could be our world in the not-too-distant future,” said producer Rick Benattar.

“We are excited to work with Scott Adkins again after our collaboration on CLOSE RANGE. He is one of the best action heroes and martial artists in the world today,” said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon.
