The producers of 2015 post-apocalyptic romantic comedy Turbo Kid (additional flavors: an eyepatch-wearing Michael Ironside, BMX chases, splat-stick) are back with another science fiction entry, although this one sounds a bit more serious. It’s called Radius, and it’s an amnesia movie with Twilight Zone elements.

Here’s the plot, according to Deadline:

The Memento-style thriller centers on a young man who wakes from a car crash with no memory of who he is. As he makes his way into town to look for help, he finds only dead bodies, all with strange pale eyes. At first believing a deadly virus is in the air, he soon discovers the horrific truth which sets in motion an unbelievable chain of events. 

Diego Klattenhoff (Homeland, The Blacklist) is set to star, presumably as the amnesiac, and Caroline Labrèche and Steeve Léonard co-wrote and will co-direct. Radius begins filming this week in Manitoba, Canada.
