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.
