Solstice Studios has revealed the first look photo from their upcoming psychological film, UNHINGED. Production on the film wraps on Sunday in New Orleans. This film marks Solstice Studios’ first production since launching last October. Solstice is targeting a third quarter 2020 wide U.S. theatrical release.
Director Derrick Borte said: “The mark of a great film is one that both entertains and sparks conversation. I believe, in a very terrifying way, Unhinged does exactly that.”
This psychological thriller takes an ordinary, everyday incident to its most terrifying conclusion in telling the story of Rachel (Pistorius), a mother who leans on her horn at the wrong time, to the wrong guy (Crowe). Road rage doesn’t begin to describe what he is about to do to her and everyone she knows.
UNHINGED stars Russell Crowe (The Mummy, The Loudest Voice), Caren Pistorius (Mortal Engines, The Light Between Two Oceans), Gabriel Bateman (Child’s Play, Lights Out), and Jimmi Simpson (“Westworld”, “Into the Dark’s Treehouse“.
The film is directed by Derrick Borte (American Dreamer) and written by Carl Ellsworth (Disturbia, Red Eye). The film is produced by Lisa Ellzey (Warrior, Kingdom of Heaven).
