StudioCanal Boards European Thriller ‘Transatlantik’ (EXCLUSIVE)

European production giant StudioCanal has set up Tony Jaswinski’s suspense-thriller “Translatlantik” with the Picture Company and Circle of Confusion, Variety has learned exclusively.

Producers are Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman at the Picture Company along with Lawrence Mattis and Rick Jacobs at Circle of Confusion.

“Transatlantik” centers on a newly in love couple who take a romantic trip to Europe. Shortly after arriving, the man disappears without a trace. Isolated and alone in a very strange city, the young woman soon discovers her love was leading a double life, and she must find out the truth before her own life is taken.

The script is said to have shades of “Frantic” and 2011’s Liam Neeson actioner “Unknown,” which Rona and Heineman also made for StudioCanal.

Circle of Confusion produces “The Walking Dead” franchise on AMC, as well as the PlayStation original series “Powers” and Robert Kirkman’s “Outcast,” premiering this summer on Cinemax. Circle’s recent films include “American Ultra,” starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart, and “Mr. Right,” starring  Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick, with Focus World releasing on April 8.

Jaswinski will exec produce. He wrote Sony’s upcoming shark thriller “The Shallows,” starring Blake Lively.

Ron Halpern and Shana Eddy will oversee for StudioCanal, which fully financed “Paddington,” “Shaun the Sheep,” “Non-Stop,” Neeson’s upcoming “The Commuter” and Nick Park’s “Early Man” with Aardman Studios.

Jaswinski is represented by Paradigm and Circle of Confusion.
