Well, it’s just like the old days. Except, a little bit different.
Ben Affleck, who came to stardom in Miramax’s “Good Will Hunting” will star in a new movie from Robert Rodriguez, a long time Miramax favorite director. Mark Gill, who was president during Miramax’s heyday, will produce with his company, Solstice.
The only person missing is Harvey Weinstein, who invented all these people. He is otherwise engaged.
“Hypnotic” is described as an “action thriller written by Rodriguez and Max Borenstein (. The film follows a detective (Affleck) who becomes entangled in a mystery involving his missing daughter and a secret government program–while investigating a string of impossible high-end heists.
Rodriguez, Studio 8 CEO Jeff Robinov and his colleagues Guy Danella & John Graham will produce the film with Solstice, which will spearhead US distribution and international sales beginning at the AFM this week.
