EXCLUSIVE: Scott Speedman is set to star opposite Patricia Clarkson in October Gale, the drama written and directed by Ruba Nadda. She also wrote and directed Cairo Time, which starred Clarkson. Speedman plays a mysterious man who, during a violent October storm, washes up on the shore of Helen Matthews’ remote island cottage, unconscious and bleeding from a gunshot wound. Clarkson plays the recently widowed doctor who takes him in, only to find that the shooter is coming back to finish the job and that the storm has cut them off from the mainland. Daniel Iron will produce through Foundry Films, and Christine Vachon will be exec producer through Killer Films. The film shoots in Canada in five weeks. This comes as the Atom Egoyan-directed The Captive — a film Speedman stars in with Ryan Reynolds, Rosario Dawson and Mireielle Enos — was selected as a Competition title at Cannes next month. Speedman, repped by UTA and Circle Of Confusion, just completed the pilot for Ryan Murphy’s Open opposite Michelle Monaghan for HBO.
