KJ Apa and Sofia Carson’s ‘Songbird’ Imagines the COVID-23 Virus

The sci-fi thriller “Songbird” now has an official trailer. The movie stars KJ Apa, Sofia Carson, Craig Robinson, Bradley Whitford, Peter Stormare, and Alexandra Daddario, and features Paul Walter Hauser and Demi Moore.

Adam Mason directed the movie, working from a script that he wrote with Simon Boyes. Michael Bay, Marcei A. Brown, Jason Clark, Jeanette Volturno, Adam Goodman​, Andrew Sugerman, and Eben Davidson served as producers on the project. STXfilms didn’t announce a premiere date for the movie but told fans that the thriller is “Coming Soon.”

The description reads, “The COVID-23 virus has mutated and the world is in its fourth year of lockdown. Infected Americans are ripped from their homes and forced into quarantine camps known as Q-Zones, from which there is no escape, as a few brave souls fight back against the forces of oppression. Amid this dystopian landscape, a fearless courier, Nico (KJ Apa), who’s immune to the deadly pathogen, finds hope and love with Sara (Sofia Carson), though her lockdown prohibits them from physical contact. When Sara is believed to have become infected, Nico races desperately across the barren streets of Los Angeles in search of the only thing that can save her from imprisonment … or worse.”

In the announcement, the studio claimed that “Songbird” was the first feature film to be made during COVID-19 in Los Angeles, and about the pandemic itself.

It will be interesting to see how the movie is received while the United States continues to struggle with the health crisis.

The studio added, “Songbird also stars Bradley Whitford and Demi Moore as a wealthy couple who may hold the key to Nico’s mission; Alexandra Daddario as a singer enmeshed in a messy and forbidden affair; Paul Walter Hauser as a disabled veteran whose best friend – a drone named Max – is his eyes and ears to a world that has left him behind; Craig Robinson as Nico’s boss; and Peter Stormare as the corrupt head of the city’s “sanitation” department, which seizes those infected and transports them to the Q-Zone.”
