This time I’m taking you to science fiction town and dragging you through some thriller and drama while I’m there. Maurice Haeems (writer/director) is a virgin for feature films. He is not, however, a lightweight. After careers in mechanical/fluid engineering, investment banking, and software he collaborated with former investors and made this film.
The casting was selected by Mark Tillman who also cast It (1990), MacGyver and Robocop (1994). It’s no wonder that casting for Chimera is tight. If you like sci-fi thriller movies, then you really shouldn’t pass this one up. It’s taken a while to release in theatres, but the idea is a really interesting one.
The title of the film has been given an additional word for release in theatres across the USA, Chimera Strain.
