Tom Felton to Star in Sci-Fi Film “Altered”

Harry Potter actor Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) is set to star in an upcoming $15 million action and sci-fi film called Altered, which is being presented at the Cannes Film Festival and is currently set for a 2025 release.

Starring alongside Felton in the film are Aggy K. Adams (The Witcher), Igor Jijikine (Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull), Liza Bugulova, and Richard Brake (Game of Thrones).

Set in an alternate present where the human population has undergone genetic enhancement, the film will follow Felton’s and Bugulova’s characters, Leon and Chloe, who “become embroiled in a battle for justice within a society fractured by genetic disparity and in the grip of corrupt politicians.”

It certainly sounds like an intriguing premise for a film. Director Timo Vuorensola (Iron SkyJeepers Creepers: Reborn) discussed his reasoning behind the film’s plot:

I wanted to create a film that’s both entertaining and allows room for eye-opening themes to flourish. Science fiction has always been a great tool for me to offer a vantage point for the viewers to observe our society from outside the box and see the issues we face from a different perspective.

It is being produced by Art Galaxy, Well Go USA Entertainment, Splendid Entertainment, and Studio Atlantic, with Paul Thompstone of Studio Atlantic as the executive producer.

Tom has a lot going on at the moment – it was recently announced that Felton had joined the cast of the Gandhi series, and he is also appearing in the stage production A Child of Science this June in Bristol, England.

We are looking forward to hearing more about this intriguing film. With a 2025 release date, we’re sure there is much more information that is yet to be released, so we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled to keep you up to date on Tom Felton’s latest venture in Altered.
