SF Studios’ Fredrik Wikström Nicastro (“Borg/McEnroe”) is producing, with Mikael Marcimain set to direct. The original screenplay was written by the team of Josh Campbell and Matt Stuecken, who penned “10 Cloverfield Lane.”
Williams and Dreymon will portray former lovers who find themselves reunited ahead of their friend’s tropical island wedding. As the only passengers on a single-engine Cessna plane making its way over the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, a spark soon rekindles — but when their pilot suddenly suffers a heart attack, the couple must fight for their lives to stay airborne and find their way back to land.
“Horizon Line” is one of the first features in SF Studios’ strategy to produce English-language films for the international market. Upcoming SF Studios productions include a U.S. remake of “A Man Called Ove,” starring Tom Hanks, and “I Am Victor” based on an upcoming novel by Jo Nesbø adapted by the James Bond scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, with Baltasar Kormakur set to direct.
