Josh Long and Angela Gulner & Yuri Baranovsky wrote the script. Moore will produce alongside Productivity Media’s William G. Santor & Doug Murray, Balcony 9 Productions’ Max Osswald, and Jason Jallet. Productivity Media’s Andrew Chang-Sang and John Hills will exec produce, alongside Balcony 9 President Rishi Bajaj.

Some Other Woman is the fourth film shot in the Cayman Islands by Productivity Media and its production partners, as part of a multi-film production deal with the Islands’ Film Commission, the Cayman’s Ministry of International Trade, Investment, Aviation and Maritime Affairs, and Dart Enterprises. Productivity produced the first three in concert with Darius Films.
“This has been an incredible ride for all who were involved in the four pictures here on Cayman Islands,” said Moore. “I can’t wait to dive into the universal and important themes within Some Other Woman, while shooting on the breathtaking scenery and infrastructure. It is truly an honor to be a part of what William Santor and PMI have done in the midst of unprecedented circumstances.”
“Our previous collaborations with the extremely talented Joel have proven incredibly successful, so we have no doubt that he is the perfect choice to helm this gripping thriller,” added Productivity Media CEO William G. Santor. “Coupled with a stellar cast who have led some of the biggest franchises in the world, and an idyllic location that continues to set the bar for Covid-safe production, we feel we have an incredible project on our hands. The Cayman Islands Government continues to be thorough and complete supporters and we are thrilled to continue this important alliance.”
In the coming years, Moore will appear as an actor in four more Avatar films, among other projects, reprising the role of Norm Spellman. He has previously directed features including Youth in Oregon (2016) and Spiral (2007).

Its slate of projects includes The Immaculate Room, starring Kate Bosworth and Emile Hirsch; Paint, starring Owen Wilson and Wendi McLendon-Covey; Speed Girl with Hilary Swank, and Stefan Vs.
