Andrew Lazar to produce sci-fi thriller Rupture

30 days of night

We have some early details on a new sci-fi thriller to pass along, one that sounds like it could be right up our alley. The film, RUPTURE, is to be produced by AMERICAN SNIPER’s Andrew Lazar and will be helmed by Secretary director Steven Shainberg, which is based on a story by Shainberg and 30 DAYS OF NIGHT's (pictured) Brian Nelson, who penned the script.

While details on this one are slim, we do know that the premise sees a single mother struggling to raise her son alone, abducted by a mysterious organization. While trying to escape, she uncovers an extraordinary secret about herself.

Tango Pictures production banner, which is a partnership between Christina Weiss Lurie, Steve Shainberg, and Lazar is teaming with AMBI Group (“The Humbling,” “In Dubious Battle” “All Roads Lead to Rome”), the movie development, finance, production and distribution group owned and run by Andrea Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi, to make the film. Christina Weiss Lurie (“Inside Job,” “Adam,” “Broken English”), will serve as producer as well.

“I’m very excited to be partnering with AMBI Group. Andrea and Lady Monika are very forward-thinking financiers and filmmakers, and this film will be the beginning of a fantastic relationship between Tango and AMBI,” said Lazar.

“When Andrew approached us with this project, it may have been our quickest ‘yes’ to date – and we are fast movers!,” said Andrea Iervolino. “’Rupture’ is an ‘event’ movie that has all the elements you’d look for in a massively commercial film. We’re excited to bring this project to life with Andrew, Christina, Steven and Brian.” Look for more on RUPTURE as we get it!
