It’s a Swede deal for Adrian Garcia Bogliano…
The 35-year-old Spanish filmmaker is set to direct Svart Cirkel (Black Circle), a Swedish-language supernatural thriller starring Swedish icon Christina Lindberg, Quentin Tarantino’s inspiration for Kill Bill, through her role in 1973 Swedish cult classic thriller They Call Her One-Eye.
Black Circle centers on two sisters whose lives change dramatically after going through hypnosis using a mysterious vinyl album recorded in the 1970s.
“This is finally my opportunity to work with Christina Lindberg who has been one of my favorite actresses for many years,” said Bogliano. “She has an incredible presence and we’re getting an amazing cast and unique locations, that will make this movie something very different from anything you’ve seen from Swedish genre films.”
Garcia Bogliano, formerly Argentina-based, but now working out of Mexico, was a 2012 Austin Fantastic Fest five-prize winner with the Spanish-language film Here Comes the Devil.
A genre-auteur, Garcia Bogliano’s Black Circle is the latest genre, geographic and language permutation for the director whose English-language U.S. war vet/werewolf tale Late Phases bowed at 2014’s SXSW, while Scherzo Diabolico weighed in as a black comedy about a separating and out-of-work accountant’s kidnapping a teen girl, who proves his worst nightmare.
Black Circle’s cast also features award-winning Swedish actors such as Mathilda Paradeiser, Hanna and Erica Midfjäll, Madeleine Trollvik and singer Johan Palm.
