EuropaCorp will release its thriller, The Circle, on April 28, 2017. Pic is based on the international best-seller by Dave Eggers, and stars Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, and John Boyega. Directed and adapted by James Ponsoldt, The Circle follows burgeoning social media executive Mae (Watson) who is encouraged by the tech company founder Eamon Bailey (Hanks) she works for to live her life with complete transparency. “But no one is really safe when everyone is watching” reads the press release. The Circle is produced by Gary Goetzman and Hanks for Playtone, Anthony Bregman for Likely Story and Ponsoldt. During that pre-summer weekend, The Circle will face off against Lionsgate’s Eugenio Derbez title How to Be a Latin Lover and Universal’s untitled Blumhouse horror project. The Circle was fully financed by Image Nation Abu Dhabi and is presented by Image Nation in association with Parkes MacDonald Productions.
