By DAVE McNARY
Colin Egglesfield, Stuart Townsend, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Byron Mann and Gary Daniels are toplining indie action-thriller “Stranger in Paradise,” which is moving into production in Thailand.
“Paradise” is produced by Corrado Jay Boccia and Daemon Hillin. Boccia’s 24/7 is producing with Benetone Films, Hillin Entertainment in association with Cinema Management Group and Triton Entertainment, while exec producers are Paul Dominique Vacharasinthu and Sonia Couling Vacharasinthu’s Marengo Films Presents.

Written and directed by Boccia, “Paradise” centers on a trader at a hedge fund whose life takes a drastic turn when the SEC launches an investigation against the head of the company for insider trading.
Forced into a “vacation” he never asked for, the trader finds himself in Bangkok with a price on his head and a morally ambiguous older brother who is knee-deep in the Thai mafia.
