Next to Split Second, Manhunt, Mind Fall and the upcoming start date for Robert Rodruguez’s Hypnotic, action thriller Shadow Run will be reportedly on deck to join the line-up for Solstice Studios. The company will soon be rolling out Russell Crowe thriller, Unhinged, beginning July 31 just as select theaters begin to reopen after months of shutdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Academy Award winner Russell Crowe and actress Caren Pistorius are set to lead director Derrick Borte’s new psychological thriller, Unhinged.
It was back in 2015 that a remake of Takashi Miike’s 2013 crime thriller, Shield Of Straw, was reported for development with Chris Weitz (About A Boy, The Golden Compass) set to produce through his Depth Of Field. Nippon Television and Anew are now joining in the efforts with word that production is now being housed at Solstice Studios, the same company currently in tow with action thriller, Split Second, after the company launched last October.
It was last October when Mark Gill (former president of Warner Independent Pictures, Miramax Films and Millennium Films) launched Solstice Studios. Joined by production heads Andrew Gunn (Freaky Friday, Cruella) and Guy Botham, and Marketing and lead strategist Vincent Bruzzese, the company’s aim, as it stands, is to produce low-to-median budgeted films with global appeal – primarily in the action, thriller and action-comedy genres for wide release next to its other acquisition endeavors.
