We’ve learned that Filmax International, the company behind Sleep Tight and the [REC] franchise, is will be producing Concrete Island.
The big news is that Brad Anderson (Transsiberian, The Machinist, Session 9, The Vanishing on 7th Street) is set to reteam with The Machinist star Christian Bale on the adaptation of the best selling novel by J.G. Ballard.
Scott Kosar (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Crazies, Amityville Horror, The Machinist) will pen the screenplay that’s described as a twisted adaptation of “Robinson Crusoe,” where the story’s protagonist, Robert Maitland, a wealthy architect, finds himself stranded in a manmade ‘island’ (a section of fenced-off wasteland in the middle of a motorway intersection) between the Westway and M4 Motorway in West London, forced to survive on only what is in his crashed Jaguar and what he is able to find.
