Andres Baiz’s latest film is moving forward…
AGC Studios has announced plans to fully finance Panopticon, the 46-year-old Colombian film director’s thriller.
The film is set to star Shailene Woodley, Anthony Mackie and Jacob Latimore.
Scott Free and AGC are producing, with AGC International and CAA Media Finance launching worldwide sales.
Baiz’s film will shoot in New Mexico this summer.
In the Emily Jerome-scripted thriller, Woodley plays Chase, an ambitious young Wall Street trader who seizes upon a hot investment opportunity in PCC Correctional, a private prison group racking up huge profits. She soon uncovers an operation rife with violence and malfeasance. Forced to choose between profiting from a gold mine career opportunity and doing the right thing, Chase teams up with a local prison guard (Mackie) to take on a culture of corrupt boardrooms, white supremacists, prison gangs and crooked correctional officers, to break apart the system that’s made her a rising star.
Baiz has been directing episodes of Netflix’s Narcos and Narcos: Mexico.
