When the Fast & Furious 7 cast came to film in Abu Dhabi, the UAE capital was abuzz with celebrity news.

It now seems the emirate is the choice filming location for another Hollywood movie. This time starring Tom Hanks.

Image Nation Abu Dhabi, a local production company, announced on Tuesday a deal to fully finance Hank’s upcoming thriller The Circle.

“The Circle is a fantastic modern-day thriller that shines a light on the role of the internet and our own identities in a world of increasing transparency and privacy issues,” Michael Garin, CEO of Image Nation, said in a statement carried by the Dubai-based Gulf News.

Hanks is also one of the producers of this film, directed and written by James Ponsoldt. The ‘Cast Away’ star will act alongside Alicia Vikander.
