The movie will be the first new Hollywood offering as theaters reopen on a major scale after shutting down in late March due to the novel coronavirus.

The current hope is that the majority of cinemas will be back in operation in late June, albeit with restricted capacity and other safety measures.

Unhinged is the first release from Solstice Studios, an indie studio launched by vet executive Mark Gill in 2018.

Unhinged is a psychological road rage thriller, directed by Derrick Borte, and scripted by Carl Ellsworth (based on his story).
A young woman named Rachel (Caren Pistorius) is running late getting to work when she crosses paths with a stranger (Crowe) at a traffic light. The stranger, who feels invisible, is determined to make one last mark on the world by teaching her some deadly lessons.   The mystery unfolds as a dangerous game of cat and mouse.

The U.S. debut of Unhinged will also coincide with cinema reopenings around the world, including in China, Australia, Germany, South Korea and a number of European markets.

“We are the canary in the coal mine, no doubt about it,” says Solstice CEO Gill.

Until now, the first major studio film scheduled for release was Chris Nolan’s Tenet on July 17, followed by Mulan on July 24.
