Evigan is ‘Burning Bright’ for Sobini

Carlos Brooks to direct tiger thriller

Sobini Films will launch production in mid-July on thriller “Burning Bright,” starring Briana Evigan (“Step Up 2 the Streets”).

Pic, which will lense in Florida, has a SAG waiver, allowing guild actors to work even if SAG is on strike.

Sundance alumnus Carlos Brooks (“Quid Pro Quo”) will direct the movie; producers are Sobini topper Mark Amin and David Higgins (“Hard Candy”), who created the story and will produce under his Launchpad Prods. banner. Sobini’s Cami Winikoff will also produce.

Script, written by Christine Coyle Johnson and Julie Prendiville Roux, centers on a 20-year-old and her autistic little brother who are trapped in a house with a ravenous tiger during a hurricane.

Sobini Films has a first-look deal with Lionsgate. Sobini’s newly established foreign sales division, headed by Todd Olsson, will be handling international licensing on the film and completed a number of pre-sales during the Cannes film market.
