Berlin: Olga Kurylenko to Star Opposite Jordi Molla in 'Duelo'
Myriad Pictures is shopping the English-language thriller to foreign buyers in Berlin.
Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, November Man) is joining Spanish actor Jordi Molla (Ant-Man, In the Heart of the Sea) in Duelo.
Molla will direct the thriller with Italian helmer Giuseppe Ferlito (it marks their English-language feature directorial debut). Myriad Pictures announced the project at the European Film Market in Berlin.
Billed as a psychological mystery thriller in the vein of Misery or The Shining, Duelo tells the story of Irina (Kurylenko), a famous actress whose fiance and best-selling horror novelist, Adriano, was viciously attacked and fell into a coma.
Years later, Irina is in Budapest to begin production on a movie when she finds herself trapped in a horrifying game of cat and mouse with her fiance's attacker. When a mysterious stranger reaches out to help her escape, she quickly finds out that nothing is as it seems.
Picturesque partners Guy Moshe and Matthew G. Zamias are producing Duelo alongside Olga Segura.
"We are so pleased to be working with this creative team. Jordi and Giuseppe have a strong and frightening vision for this film. We are also looking forward to working with Olga Kurylenko who is such an international star," said Myriad president Kirk D'Amico.
Kurylenko is repped by CAA.
