Mark Wahlberg-starrer Anant directly worked on Paramount Plus

Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg’s sci-fi film Infinite is set to skip the theatres and release directly on streamer Paramount Plus. The announcement was made by ViacomCBS CEO Bob Bakish during the company’s quarterly earnings call on Thursday, reported Variety.

Infinite is an adaptation of author D Eric Maikranz’s 2009 novel The Reincarnationist Papers.

The sci-fi thriller, directed by Antoine Fuqua, was slated to hit cinemas in the US on September 24.

Wahlberg stars as Evan McCauley, a guy who is haunted daily by skills he has never learned and the memories of places he’s never visited.

“Self-medicated and on the brink of a mental breakdown, he is rescued by a secret group whose members call themselves Infinites. They reveal to him that his memories are real, but they are from multiple past lives,” the official plotline read.

Other cast members include Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sophie Cookson, Jason Mantzoukas, Rupert Friend, Toby Jones and Dylan O’Brien.

The film has been produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Mark Vahradian, Mark Huffam, John Zaozirny, Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson.
