Mind Fall is the second project from Studio 8 and Solstice Studios’ strategic partnership, their most recent movie being Robert Rodriguez’s action thriller Hypnotic starring Oscar-winner Ben Affleck.
Set in the near future where illegal new technology allows specific memories to be removed from one person’s brain and inserted into another’s, Mind Fall follows one woman’s journey into the black market of memories. She soon finds herself accused of murdering a man she has no recollection of knowing.
Mind Fall will be produced by Studio 8’s Jeff Robinov, Guy Danella, John Graham and Scoop Wasserstein, with Solstice financing and releasing the pic stateside. Solstice will also handle international sales on the title.

His latest film, the forthcoming Bac Nord, is based on a true scandal involving three cops working in the tough neighborhoods of Marseille who were involved in drug trafficking. That pic stars Gilles Lellouche and is scheduled to open later this year.
