Atom Egoyan Witnesses Seven Wonders

Acclaimed filmmaker Atom Egoyan (“The Sweet Hereafter”) will write and direct the romantic fantasy “Seven Wonders” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story centers on a woman named Pandora who, after her own relationship goes south, becomes consumed by a relationship between a commercials director and the director’s boyfriend, even following the helmer as she shoots commercials at the Seven Wonders of the World.

The two women of “Wonders” meet online, leading to ambiguity over whether some of the interactions might be taking place only in Pandora’s imagination.

The project had been set up at Universal, but it’s likely that it will move forward under an indie model. With its exotic locations, the budget is likely to be higher than it would be for a traditional Egoyan film.
