Blair, Smart, Ribisi Enter Gallo’s “Circle”

Scribe George Gallo (“Bad Boys”, “Midnight Run”) will sit in the director’s chair for the upcoming indie thriller “Columbus Circle” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story centers on a reclusive heiress (Selma Blair) in an upscale Manhattan apartment building who is brought face-to-face with her fears when a detective (Giovanni Ribisi) shows up to investigate a homicide next door and a new couple (Amy Smart, Jason Lee) moves in to that apartment.

Kevin Pollak, who co-wrote the script with Gallo, plays the building’s concierge and one of the heiress’ few friends. Jason Antoon has also been cast.

Shooting kicks off this month in Los Angeles. Christopher Mallick, William Sherak and Jason Shuman will produce.
