Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Oblivion) has signed on to supernatural horror pic Mara, from Room 101, Mann Made Films, The Solution Entertainment Group, and Synchronicity Entertainment. Clive Tonge is directing in his feature debut. Pic riffs on the mythology and true phenomena of sleep paralysis aka sudden unexpected nocturnal death syndrome, with Kurylenko playing a criminal psychologist investigating the murder of a man seemingly strangled in his sleep by his wife. She uncovers a mystery surrounding an ancient demon who kills people in their sleep and must save herself and the dead man’s young daughter from becoming the next victims. Solution’s Myles Nestel is producing with Room 101′s microbudget horror guru Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity, Insidious) and Mann Made Films’ Scott Mann and James Edward Barker. Kurylenko is repped by CAA and Tavistock Wood.
EXCLUSIVE: 3D indie action crime thriller Run, starring Chronicles of Narnia actor William Moseley, has been acquired by Millennium Entertainment. The parkour flick follows American teenager Daniel Lombardi (Moseley) who uses his free-running skills to pull off small robberies with his father (Adrian Pasdar) until a new girlfriend (Kelsey Chow) and the promise of going straight encourages him to use his skills for good. Eric Roberts and Boardwalk Empire‘s Edoardo Ballerini co-star as lifelong enemies of Daniel’s dad who start closing in on the duo. As parkour movies go, the art of hurdling urban obstacles exploded with Euro actioners like 2005′s District B13 and filtered into Hollywood blockbusters including Casino Royale and The Bourne Ultimatum – but the trend has slowed down of late. Still, Simone Bartesaghi was so enamored with the discipline and its potential for filming practical stunts that he wrote and directed Run and makes his helming debut with the film, which won Best Screenplay at the Milan International Film Festival and won Best Emerging Director and Best 3D honors at L.A.’s 3D Film Festival.
