AFM: Diego Hallivis Directing Action-Thriller ‘Borderline’

“Curvature” director Diego Hallivis has come on board to helm the action-thriller “Borderline” from Phillip Tarl Denson’s script, Variety has learned exclusively.

The plot for the film is currently being kept under wraps, but it is described as a cross between “Hell or High Water” and “John Wick.” Julio Hallivis, brother to Diego Hallivis, is producing. The brothers’ 4-year-old 1inMM Productions is financing “Borderline.”

The Hallivis brothers also produced sci-fi thriller “Curvature” through 1inMM. The sci-fi thriller, starring Lyndsy Fonseca, Glenn Morshower, Zach Avery and Linda Hamilton, has its world premiere last month at the Sitges film festival and will be released in domestic theaters in the first quarter. It was the first film in an elevated genre slate from 1inMM Productions.

Denson is an Australian screenwriter and scientist who received accolades for his sci-fi script “Lucid,” the winner of the 2011 Northern Territory Literary Award for Screenwriting. He was a finalist in the John Hinde Award for science fiction and finalist in LA Gateway script competition.

1inMM Productions is in post-production on the home-invasion thriller “Hell Is Where the Home Is,” directed by Orson Oblowitz and starring Angela Trimbur, Jonathan Howard, Janel Parrish, Fairuza Balk and Zach Avery. The company was founded in 2013 by the Hallivis brothers along with Zach Horwitz, and has distributed titles throughout Latin America before expanding to finance and producing genre projects.
