Bad Boys Scribe helms Columbus Circle

Bad Boy George Gallo set to circle Columbus!

The Scribe George Gallo (Bad Boys, Midnight Run) is set to direct indie thriller Columbus Circle from a script he co-wrote with Kevin Pollak.

The film – which stars Selma Blair, Amy Smart, Jason Lee and Giovanni Ribisi – centres on a reclusive heiress (Blair) in an upscale Manhattan apartment building who is brought face-to-face with her fears when a detective (Ribisi) shows up to investigate a homicide next door and a new couple (Smart and Lee) moves in to that apartment.

William Sherak and Jason Shuman, who executive produced the Paul Rudd comedy Role Models, will produce the flick.
