Bernal Stuck On The “Loneliest Planet”

Gael Garcia Bernal (“Y Tu Mama Tambien,” “Amores Perros”) has joined the independently financed thriller “The Loneliest Planet” for Parts and Labor, Flying Moon and Wild Invention says Deadline.

Based on a short story by Tom Bissell, the film will follow a young backpacking couple’s trek through the Caucasus mountains.

When they hire a local guide to make through the isolated wilderness, their relationship is tested in unanticipated ways.

Julia Loktev (“Day Night Day Night”) directs from her own script. Shooting kicks off July 26th in the Georgian republic.
