Written by Miller, in Cipher, following the recent death of his mother, 13-year-old video game junkie Asa’s (Gabriel Bateman) life changes yet again when his brain is implanted with one-of-a-kind computer technology, and the boy and his father John (Grenier) unwittingly find themselves at the center of the next great war – over artificial intelligence.
Koteas will play Hal Berek, a Texas rancher with a strong opinion about how John and Asa should face the challenges ahead of them.
Kyla-Drew Simmons and Sydney Morton co-star.
Miller will executive produce via her overall deal with Ucp. David Gordon Green, Danny McBride, Jody Hill and Brandon James will executive produce for Rough House Pictures.
