Gary Shore To Direct “The Great Game”

Gary Shore (“Dracula Untold”) has been set to direct the historical epic “The Great Game” for Cross Creek Pictures.

Bryan McMullin’s script is set during the lawless Caspian Sea oil rush in Baku, Azerbaijan at the turn of the century during which deceit and murder were common requisites to build empires.

The action follows a young Emanuel Nobel (the family who founded the prestigious Nobel Prize) who is longing for excitement in the shadow of a family of genius inventors and engages in a heated romance with a mysterious ballerina.

Brian Oliver, Maurice Fadida and Jason Seagraves are producing.
