As the graphic novel adaptation The Scribbler makes its way to the American Film Market next week, EW has premiered the first poster. Arrow's Katie Cassidy stars a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness using "The Siamese Burn", an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. The film is directed by John Suits (Breathing Room) and written by Daniel Schaffer, who also penned the original 2006 graphic novel.
Naa founder Gabe Cowan, whose company produced the film, had this to say,
"The Scribbler respects its graphic novel roots and became this insane, intense action movie with tons of cool new sci-fi elements. It's a mixture of ridiculously talented actresses kicking the crap out of each other while also commenting on individuality vs. conformity."
No domestic release date has been secured.
"...a young woman recently released from a mental hospital continues a treatment program to rid her of her 'alternate' personalities.
"She moves into a halfway house for mental patients where the residents begin to die at an unusual rate.

12 Years a Slave, 2013.
Directed by Steve McQueen.
Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Brad Pitt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Fassbender, Sarah Paulson, Paul Dano, Paul Giamatti, Quvenzhané Wallis, Garret Dillahunt, Lupita Nyong'o, Michael K. Williams, Scoot McNairy, Ruth Negga, and Taran Killam.
In the antebellum United States, Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery.
On a rainy English day in Shoreditch, North-East London, the Rich Mix Cinema was the host to an early festival screening of Steve McQueen’s highly praised and eagerly anticipated 12 Years a Slave. After his two masterworks - Hunger and Shame - McQueen has stood out to me as one of if not the finest director this country has to offer. His unique and incredibly profound stylistic approach to cinema is a revelation, in an era where film as a medium has sunk underneath conglomerates, exploiting the art form for profit. »

The fascinating promotional featurettes continue for director Steve McQueen’s fact-based drama 12 Years A Slave. This time we have a focus on McQueen himself as he and his cast and crew talk about working with the harrowing, historical account of slavery by Solomon Northup during the 1850s. It’s most certainly an early Oscar favourite with Chiwetel Ejiofor as the lead Northup, whose well-educated, black New York-born husband and father was brutally beaten in a back alley and sold into slavery.
In addition, we also have a brand new television spot and clip from the all-star film released in the Us on the 18th October and the UK 24th January 2014. You can catch our review Here.
12 Years A Slave co-stars Michael Fassbender, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano, Garret Dillahunt, Paul Giamatti, Scoot McNairy, Lupita Nyong’o, Adepero Oduye, Sarah Paulson, Brad Pitt, Michael Kenneth Williams and Alfre Woodard.

12 Years a Slave could hardly have more press going for it at this point, and by all accounts it is a film you don’t want to miss. Now, you can check out a very cool featurette that’s been put together to showcase the director’s vision. It isn’t just McQueen either, as you might expect from the title, but it’s the actors, producers, and others, giving their view of what his vision is.
If you weren’t already psyched for it, this might do the trick. Even though it isn’t that long, it gives you some serious perspective on what the film, and the director, hope to achieve, and insight into how that might be possible.
