‘Smoke’ rises at Gold Circle

Garcia tapped to helm screamer

Tyro helmer Victor Garcia will direct the horror pic “Smoke” for Gold Circle Films.

Story revolves around a young woman who, while on the run from an abusive husband, is haunted by premonitions as she hides in a motel. Ronnie Christensen wrote the script.

Pic is produced by Gold Circle’s Paul Brooks and Roy Lee and Doug Davidson at Vertigo Entertainment and Lauren Lloyd at Bedlam Media.

Exec producers are Gold Circle’s Norm Waitt and Scott Niemeyer. Gold Circle exec Zak Kadison oversees “Smoke.”

Born in Spain, where he worked on films including Pedro Almodovar’s “Talk to Her” and Guillermo del Toro’s “Hellboy,” Garcia gained Hollywood’s attention with his pic “El Ciclo.” After winning the prize for horror short at Screamfest Los Angeles in October, it made the rounds and earned the Barcelona-based f/x specialist reps at Endeavor and Underground Management

Gold Circle’s “The Wedding Date” and “White Noise” are in theaters.

Vertigo recently released “The Grudge” and is preparing to release “The Ring Two” and “Dark Water.”
