As the European Film Market approaches, Atlas Independent has set Noam Murro to helm Blink, the 2014 Black List script by Hernany Perla. Murro, who recently directed Warner Bros’ 300: Rise Of An Empire, is gearing up for a summer production start. Highland Film Group is launching international sales next week in Berlin.
Perla’s story centers on a man left fully paralyzed during an infamous, unsolved bank robbery. Years later, he is taken hostage for the secrets in his head. With only the use of his eyes, he must outwit his captors and solve the mystery of the heist. William Green and Aaron Ginsburg are producing with Jake Kurily of Charles Roven’s Atlas Entertainment.
An eight-time DGA Award nominated commercials director, Murro made his feature debut with 2009’s Smart People. He is repped by CAA and Management 360. Perla is exec producing Sony’s action thriller Shadow Run and is repped by Madhouse Entertainment and Original Artists.
Atlas Independent is currently in post-production on Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego’s The Man On Carrion Road and William Monahan’s Mojave with Garrett Hedlund and Oscar Isaac.
