"The Conspiracy"

XLrator Media has acquired all U.S. distribution rights to the political thriller "The Conspiracy," written and directed by Christopher MacBride and produced by Lee Kim. The film premiered at Fantastic Fest in Austin.

"Christopher’s riveting film explores the fascinating world of the Illuminati, conspiracy theorists and secret societies," said XLrator CEO Barry Gordon. "'The Conspiracy' is a cinematic thrill-ride that challenges our notion of what is ‘truth,’ and reveals those shadowy forces that will do anything to control it."

The film, inspired by actual conspiracy theories, centers on two young filmmakers (Aaron Poole and Jim Gilbert) who select a crazed conspiracy theorist as the subject of their new movie. When the man disappears without a trace, the filmmakers begin an obsessive quest to uncover the truth that will lead them to an ancient and dangerous secret society.

Canadian writer-director MacBride’s thriller pitch "Echo" was bought earlier this year by 20th Century Fox with Shawn Levy to produce through his Fox-based 21 Laps banner.
