STARRING Bruce Willis
WRITTEN BY John Brancato, Michael Ferris
DIRECTED BY Jonathan Mostow

Going outside is so last century. The sci-fi thriller Surrogates (based on a graphic novel of the same name) envisions a not-too-distant future in which everyone interacts with the world via humanoid robots. ”You sit around in your pajamas all day, and yet have a complete social life executed by this idealized version of yourself,” says director Jonathan Mostow (Terminator 3). Pretty cool, until a terrorist starts murdering humans by hacking into their surrogate bodies, sparking an investigation led by Bruce Willis’ character. Says Mostow, ”It’d be like if somebody could send you an e-mail that killed you.”
