Monaghan, Rodriguez Set for ‘Fortuna’
Dominic Monaghan and Freddy Rodriguez have signed on to headline Swiss writer-director Barthelemy Grossmann's futuristic horror thriller "Fortuna."
Monaghan has starred in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and the TV series "Lost," while Rodriguez was a former ensemble player on "Six Feet Under" who has since been seen in the movies "Grindhouse,""Lady in the Water" and "Bottle Shock."
The elite offer as a solution "Fortuna," a mysterious game in which one in 1,000 people win a prize enabling him or her to join the upper class; however, the challenge comes with some risk since contestants are never again seen by the general population.
Grossmann is expected to begin his six-week shoot Nov. 10 in Sofia, Bulgaria, the entertainment industry trade newspaper said.
