Beau Bridges joins 'Columbus Circle'

Indie thriller directed and co-written by George Gallo

Beau Bridges has rounded out the principal cast of "Columbus Circle," an indie thriller directed and co-written by George Gallo.

"Circle" centers on reclusive heiress Abigail (Selma Blair), who hasn't left her upscale Manhattan apartment building in nearly two decades. She's in contact with only two people: her building's concierge, Klandermann (Kevin Pollak), with whom she communicates via notes, and Dr. Raymond Fontaine (Bridges), a longtime family friend and her sole confidant for most of her life.

Abigail is brought face-to-face with her fears when a detective (Giovanni Ribisi) shows up to investigate a homicide next door and a new couple (Amy Smart and Jason Lee) moves in to that apartment.

Principal photography on the movie, co-written by Gallo and Pollak, has started in Los Angeles.

Oxymoron Entertainment's Christopher Mallick and Blue Star Entertainment's William Sherak and Jason Shuman are producing.

The CAA-repped Bridges' recent credits include a recurring role on NBC's "My Name Is Earl," a guest turn on ABC's "Desperate Housewives" and a part in the 2008 movie "Max Payne."
