John R. Thompson

John R. Thompson is Creative Producer of “The Futurists” and Movie Producer at Daedal Dream.
John’s landlord was Dr. Bedford, the first person in the world to be frozen. During his childhood, John’s dad and mom kept frozen brains in his garage freezer — completely unrelated. It wasn’t to teach John the skills of cryonics or chain saw murdering. It was for a physicians’ neuro anatomy atlas John’s dad was writing…
Influenced by writers, John studied film at NYU and creative writing at USC. The subject material of his career came quickly. Cryonics. Several years before John joined Alcor to be frozen, he met family friend Dave Beverly. Dave was an old friend of Jerry Leaf, the man who cryopreserved more people in the world than anyone. John benefited from the amazing and influential stories about Jerry and Saul Kent and the inspiring people at Alcor, the forefront of extreme regenerative medicine.
John has also been influenced by the careers of stem cell pioneer Mike West and anti-aging revolutionary Dr. Aubrey de Grey. Presently, John is dedicating his life to the completion of an emotional Hollywood thriller about the untold worlds of regenerative health care and its sometimes radical opposition, be it fictional or otherwise.
