A lot of films are gathering momentum at the European Film Market, which has only just (formally) begun today, after a couple hectic days of pre-sales. One notable new film is Gone, which now has Summit on board to distribute and Amanda Seyfried set to star.

Heitor Dhalia will shoot the film in April based on an Allison Burnett script that follows ” a young woman named Jill (Seyfried) who returns home from her night shift to find her sister’s bed empty. She’s convinced the serial killer who kidnapped her two years before has come back to finish the job. But the police do not believe Jill, who knows time is running out. With no one to turn to, she sets off to find her sister and face her abductor once and for all.” The tagline ‘Taken for girls!’ comes to mind, but I dont mean to be reductive. A solid action thriller with a strong female lead would be great to see. [THR]

Here’s a bit of casting news to start the day. Ray Winstone has jumped onto Red Snow, a “serial killer thriller” in which Winstone will be “an ex-SAS officer tracking down his missing daughter in the snow forests of a remote town in north Canada.” Script and direction are by Stuart St. Paul based on the true story of a killer that targeted Alaskan towns in the ’80s. You don’t know St. Paul’s name, but you know his work; he’s been a stunt guy for over 30 years with credits including Aliens, some of the Roger Moore Bond films and the recent Red Riding productions.
