Horizon Line: Allison Williams, Alexander Dreymon to star in survival thriller
Allison Williams (Get Out, Girls) and Alexander Dreymon (The Last Kingdom) are set to star in the upcoming survival-thriller Horizon Line for STXfilms and Nordic major SF Studios, who developed the project. The original screenplay was written by Josh Campbell & Matt Stuecken (10 Cloverfield Lane).
In the edge-of-your-seat thriller Horizon Line, former lovers Sara and Jackson find themselves reunited ahead of their friend’s tropical island wedding. As the only passengers on a single-engine Cessna plane making its way over the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, a spark soon rekindles between Sara and Jackson. However, when their pilot suddenly suffers a heart attack, the couple must fight for their lives to stay airborne and find their way back to land.
SF Studios’ own Fredrik Wikström Nicastro (Borg/McEnroe, Easy Money) is producing, with award-winning director Mikael Marcimain (Call Girl, The Laser Man) set to direct.
“I am so excited to produce the first English language film of one of Sweden’s most talented directors, based on Josh and Matt’s unique script with Allison Williams and Alexander Dreymon starring. This is going to be an entertaining thrill ride that we are looking forward to making with our friends at STX,” says Fredrik Wikström Nicastro, Producer and SVP International Production at SF Studios.
Principal photography will commence in Mauritius on February 11, 2019, before moving to Dublin and then Pinewood in London. STXinternational is handling international distribution for this highly anticipated film. The company will launch sales on the new title at the upcoming European Film Market.
“When I first read Horizon Line I was immediately struck by the high concept, constant tension and brilliant characters that just jumped from the page. You are rooting for this couple at every step of the way — it’s a complete crowd pleaser and audiences in the US and around the world will love them and the film,” added Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms. “It also makes me especially happy to be partnering with Fredrik and our friends at SF Studios.”
Executive producers of Horizon Line are Jaume Collett-Sera (The Shallows, Non-Stop), Juan Sola (The Commuter) and Peter Garde (A Royal Affair, Antichrist).
Allison Williams is best known for her critically acclaimed performance in Jordan Peele’s Academy Award-winning 2017 horror film Get Out and her role as Marnie Michaels on the HBO comedy-drama series Girls.
Alexander Dreymon’s credits include the Netflix/BBC series The Last Kingdom, and FX’s Emmy Award-winning series American Horror Story: Coven. Dreymon also appeared in the WW II movie Resistance.
