The Call Up

High concept thriller – a group of elite gamers are invited to trial a state-of-the-art virtual reality sim, but what starts out like a dream encounter with cutting edge video technology – a perfect representation of soldiers in a warzone – takes a turn for the sinister when the stakes are raised to fatal. These masters of the shoot ’em up will have to fight for their lives within a game gone too far: this time it’s for real.

The Call Up is written and directed by Charles Barker, produced by Matthew James Wilkinson and John Giwa-Amu, and stars Ali CookTom Benedict Knight, and Christopher Obi.
