Vice sounds like a re-vamp of the ol’ Westworld idea; build a fantastic resort, and stock it with lifelike AI so folks can live out their fantasies. Of course, with this being the 21st Century, simply watching cowboys and the like wouldn’t be enough. So naturally, there’s more…well, the name of the film is Vice. You do the math.
Gotta admit I could barely recognize Thomas Jane underneath that Sirius Black Hairclub For Men ‘do. But as there was only one image of Bruce Willis, I’m guessing Jane does the heavy lifting here. Looking forward to seeing what Ambyr Childers can do with her Blade Runner-esque AI. She’s got indie cred on top of her good looks, so I’m hoping for a nuanced performance.
Here’s a few pics, and the official synopsis. Vice hits theaters January 16th.
Julian Michaels (Bruce Willis) has designed the ultimate resort: VICE, where anything goes and the customers can play out their wildest fantasies with artificial inhabitants who look, think and feel like humans. When an artificial (Ambyr Childers) becomes self-aware and escapes, she finds herself caught in the crossfire between Julian’s mercenaries and a cop (Thomas Jane) who is hell-bent on shutting down Vice, and stopping the violence once and for all.
