Set to bring a fresh twist to the revenge flick is Carnival, which features a circus knife-thrower using his particular set of skills to avenge his sister’s murder. Far from a one-man band however, he enlists the help of a host of fellow circus performers, each with their own unique specialties.
As reported by Variety, Maleficent director and Oscar-winning Production Designer Robert Stromberg (pictured) has signed on to direct the film for Anonymous Content, Voltage Pictures, Peck Entertainment, and Bread & Circuses Entertainment. The script was penned by Matias Caruso, who also wrote Joe Lynch’s upcoming Steven Yeun-starrer Mayhem.
Casting in now underway on Carnival, with principal photography set to start in the autumn. Voltage will finance and handle worldwide sales at the Berlin Film Festival.
