Alexander commented: “With Anomaly, Adam has created a suspenseful, contained thriller wrapped around a grounded sci-fi concept that organically sets up a scalable, ongoing franchise. I couldn’t be more excited to be going on this ride with him.”
Bland added: “Adam and I had a great experience working together on Pulp and I’m excited to be doing our next film together. Anomaly is a great story, and Adam has a strong vision that will enable us to deliver a compelling film.”
