Lopez-Gallego directing thriller that begins lensing Friday

Atlas Independent has added Sharlto Copley (“District 9″), Thomas Kretschmann, Josie Ho, Joseph Morgan, Erin Richards and Max Wrottesley to the cast of “Open Grave.”

Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego (“Apollo 18″) is directing the tale of six desperate individuals who wake up with amnesia-like symptoms next to an open grave of rotting bodies in a remote, desolate forest.

Atlas Independent’s William Green and Aaron Ginsburg are producing with Michael Wunderman. Production will begin Friday. The film is being produced in association with 852 films.

The project was written by Eddie and Chris Borey.

Camela Galano, who is handling international sales through her Speranza13 Media company, has closed deals with Village Roadshow for Australia/ New Zealand; with Svensk for Scandinavia; with Myndform for Iceland; and with Shooting Stars for the Middle East. The film will be on offer at Cannes.
