Complete plot and information about Infinite
Evan McCauley (Mark Wahlberg) has not had an easy life. He has long been plagued by hallucinations and was diagnosed as schizophrenic at the age of 14 – after carving the words “Look inside” (“Look inside”) into his own chest.
But everything he thought he knew is turned upside down when strangers like Bathurst (Chiwetel Ejiofor) track him down and confront him with mysterious objects. It turns out that Evan’s visions are actually glimpses of lives previously lived: Memories of other existences. He is the reincarnation of these predecessors. Moreover, he is not the only one of these “Infinite” people who are constantly reborn and thus in a certain sense immortal. But the ancient secret society he is now supposed to join doesn’t seem to have only good intentions.
Background & Info on Infinite
Infinite is based on the novel The Reincarnationist Papers, published by US author D. Eric Maikranz in 2009. In the book, however, the main character is named Evan Michaels, and the film adaptation also deviates from the original in several other elements.
Paramount Pictures bought the rights to the script for Infinite back in 2017, with the project described as Wanted meets Matrix. Originally, Chris Evans was cast as the lead, but left the film again due to scheduling incompatibilities with the series Discreet. As a result, Mark Wahlberg was cast and filming began in September 2019.
Filming locations included London, Nepal, Mexico City, New York City, Guanajuato, Thailand, the Alps and a ski hall in Cardiff. In the Corona pandemic, Infinite’s scheduled summer 2020 theatrical release pushed back and was even moved to the Paramount+ streaming service in the US. (ES)
