Survival movie to film at Pinewood Studios
Survival story Horizon Line is set to film scenes at Pinewood Studios, and will also shoot on location in Mauritius in the Indian Ocean and in Irish capital Dublin.
Allison Williams and Alexander Dreymon will star in the story of two former lovers who face a fight for survival when their light aircraft runs into difficulties while flying over the Indian Ocean.
STXfilms is producing the film alongside Stockholm-based SF Films, with Mikael Marcimain set to direct.
Production will begin in Mauritius on 11 February.
The island nation in the western Indian Ocean is not established as a production hub but does offer a base 30% rebate as a filming incentive for features that spend at least $100,000 locally.
Recent productions have included Steven Knight’s mystery thriller Serenity, which used the island as a stand-in for the Florida Keys.
