Streaming service Tubi has announced that it is set to release the feature film Corrective Measures starring Bruce Willis and Michael Rooker as part of its new original content strategy.
Based on the graphic novel of the same name, the film is being directed by Sean Patrick O’Reilly (Howard Lovecraft, The Kingdom of Madness) and is “set in San Tiburon, the world’s most dangerous maximum-security penitentiary and home to the world’s most treacherous superpowered criminals where tensions among the inmates and staff heighten, leading to anarchy that engulfs the prison and order is turned upside down.”
“We’re excited to be harnessing the creative talent of Sean Patrick O’Reilly, Bruce Willis, Michael Rooker and Todd Masters to bring this celebrated comic book series to life,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer at Tubi. “Corrective Measures is a powerfully authentic and captivating sci-fi action film that speaks to our unwavering commitment to provide the Tubi audience with a broad array of compelling original content.
“Corrective Measures is a project I’ve been wanting to see come to life from the pages of Arcana’s graphic novel series for a long time,” added O’Reilly. “Overseeing this project from script to screen has been an incredible journey, and to have my live-action directing debut at this level with so many talented cast and crew is truly a dream come true. Directing, writing and producing Corrective Measures was such an incredible experience and I cannot think of a better partner than FOX and Tubi for Arcana’s launch into live action productions.”
Along with Willis and Rooker, the film features a cast that includes Dan Payne (Watchmen), Diego Diaz (Power Rangers), Tom Cavanagh (The Flash), Kat Ruston (The 100), Kevin Zegers (Rebel) and Hayley Sales (Deadpool 2). It is targeting a 2022 debut on the streaming platform.
