WHO WE ARE
Based in London and New York, Solar Circle Pictures was created to develop and produce feature films in the UK and the US.
Solar was formed as an independent film company by award winning director Jon Dennis and co-founder Chris Coffey in the Spring of 2018, with the aim to produce and direct not only Jon’s projects but to develop scripts with people who fit with the independent 'Solar' spirit.
Our new LA office will be opening soon…
Solar are delighted to announce our first project '8 Days With Hopper', to be directed by Jon Dennis and exec produced by Hollywood legend Lawrence Schiller.
The feature film will be based on the incendiary story of the eight day marriage between America's sweetheart Michelle Phillips and Hollywood's ultimate hellraiser, Dennis Hopper.
Solar launch the official Instagram account for ‘8 Days with Hopper’, keep up to date on location scouting, pre-production news and pictures.
Oritte Bendory, has signed on as Screenwriter for 8 Days With Hopper. Her most recent work the sci-fi short story, “Carecrow: Her Better Self” was acquired by Amblin Entertainment.
Emmy winner Lawrance Schiller, a noted American film director, producer and writer, joins forces with Solar on our debut movie ‘8 Days With Hopper’. Larry has worked with the likes of Paul Newman, Tommy Lee Jones, William Hurt and Dennis Hopper in an amazing career so far. Larry directed the Hopper film 'American Dreamer' in 1971 and the extended montage stills sequence in the Oscar laden 'Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid'.
His understanding of the story and his connection with Hopper makes him a perfect Exec Producer for this project.
