Gold Circle Preps Misery-style Thriller ‘Solo’

Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego is set to make his English-language directorial debut with the Gold Circle Films/Safran thriller Solo. Based on a spec script from writer David Coggeshall, the details are being kept under lock and key, although the film is said to be a “Misery”-style thriller for the teen set, with elements of “Lord of the Flies” and “Blue Lagoon.” The plan is to begin principal photography within the next few months. Lopez-Gallego made a splash in September at the Toronto International Film Festival when the Weinstein Co. picked up his Spanish survival thriller King of the Hill (review), which I wasn’t all to fond of.
