Aussie actress Rachael Taylor will travel forward a few years in her new film role in sci-fi thriller Arq.

Known to her fans for her role in Marvel's Jessica Jones, Taylor will team-up with actor Robbie Amell to star in the post-apocalyptic film set in the near future, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The low-budget flick, written and directed by Tony Elliot, follows the life of an engineer (Amell) who protects a potentially war-ending technology that forces him to relive the same day over and over.

The film, which has obtained exclusive worldwide distribution rights by Netflix, will be produced by Lost City and XYZ Films and begin filming this northern winter.
