A bit of old news, but I just discovered this article didn’t publish: Deadline is reporting 4 more actors have been signed for Syfy’s upcoming Rewind pilot: Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider, Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith) as Priya, an “a-typical” historian and behavioral anthropologist; Jennifer Ferrin (The Cape, Sex and the City 2) as Bryce, an obsessive, overachieving scientist who graduated MIT at 18 and isn’t concerned with other people’s perceptions of her; Robbie Jones (Hellcats, One Tree Hill) as Danny, the trusted friend of Henry Knox (played by Shane McRae); and Keon Mohajeri (Circumstance) as Charlie, a mathematician who can reduce history to mathematics with his own patented technology.
Rewind is described as a thriller that revolves around a team of military field operatives and civilian scientists who must use untested technology to travel back in time to alter past events in order to change the future and avoid a devastating terrorist attack. Justin Marks wrote the pilot and will executive produce with Tom Spezialy, Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Gene Stein. BermanBraun and Universal Cable Productions also produce Syfy’s original hit series Alphas, currently entering its second season.
On Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone’s instant chemistry:
“We screen tested them together, and she’s very funny and really quick and snappy. I remember the first time we screen tested them — I don’t think they’d met before, really — and he took a minute for him to get back up to speed with her because she was so funny. And then they really brought out really great parts of the other’s performance. Of course, it was there, and that’s why we cast that dynamic. It was really great to watch it on screen.”
