Robbie Amell and Rachael Taylor to Star in Netflix Film ‘ARQ’


Robbie Amell and Rachael Taylor, known most recently for their roles on “The Flash” and “Jessica Jones,” respectively, have been cast in the Netflix sci-fi thriller “ARQ.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “ARQ” is being written and directed by “Orphan Black” mastermind, Tony Elliott. The film is a low-budget sci-fi thriller, but looks to continue building and expanding Netflix’s original content reach. And now that they’re worldwide, everyone will be watching. The synopsis of the film is below.

“ARQ” is a post-apocalyptic thriller set in the near future when the oil supply has run dry. Trapped in a house and surrounded by a gang of mysterious masked intruders, an engineer (Amell) must protect a technology that could deliver unlimited energy and end the wars that have consumed the world. The only problem is that the technology has created a time loop that condemns him and his friends all to relive the same day over and over.

Amell just finished shooting McG-directed horror comedy film, “The Babysitters” and will next be seen as a return guest star on “The Flash,” but as Deathstorm, an evil version of his character on Earth-2. Taylor will next be seen in the Matthew McConaughey film, “Gold” and will reprise her role as Trish Walker on season two of “Jessica Jones.”
