That's Bradley Gallo (in the Penn State t-shirt, of course) with director Brad Anderson on the set.

Have you seen trailers for The Call?

A teenage girl is walking through a parking garage when she’s suddenly captured by a shadowy figure and thrown into a car’s trunk. From there, she makes a frantic call (the call?) to a 911 operator, played by Halle Berry. The rest of the commercial is a dark, jolty montage of breaking glass, ringing phones, and screaming. So, basically, all the ingredients for any good action thriller.

Turns out, there’s a Penn Stater behind The CallBradley Gallo ’99 is head of production and development for Troika Pictures, the movie’s producer. Gallo has also worked in TV, including a stint as associate producer for Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN.

The movie stars Berry and Abigail Breslin (remember the cute little girl from 2007’s Little Miss Sunshine?) and opens Friday. The Call is already getting good reviews, like this one from The Hollywood Reporter.
