Zal Batmanglij (see on set above) barely had time to unpack his bags after showing Sound of My Voice (11′ Sundance) and he quickly rejoined Brit Marling and a huge cast comprised of Alexander Skarsgård, Ellen Page, Julia Ormond, Patricia Clarkson, Toby Kebbell and Shiloh Fernandez for The East, a Fox Searchlight project that the distributor has been tight-lipped about – no updates have been made since he project has been in post production of January of this year.
Gist: Co-written by Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, this centers on a private contracting firm tasked with protecting big corporations from radical environmentalists and anti-business extremists, who tasks its best and brightest agent, Sarah Moss (Marling), to infiltrate a mysterious terrorist organization known only as ‘The East’.
