Saban Films has acquired the rights to the crime-thriller “Most Wanted,” which stars Antoine Olivier Pilon, Jim Gaffigan and Josh Hartnett, the distributor introduced Thursday. It will distribute the movie within the U.S. this summer season.
Daniel Roby wrote and directed the thriller that’s based mostly on a real story. André Rouleau and Valérie d’Auteuil produced beneath their Caramel Films banner. Executive producers are Highland Film Group’s Delphine Perrier, Arianne Fraser and Henry Winterstern, Goldrush Entertainment’s Eric Gozlan and Richard Iott, Les Films Seville’s Patrick Roy and Anne-Claire Villeneuve, Daniel Roby, Yvann Thibaudeau and Marc Côté.
“Most Wanted” follows an investigative journalist (Hartnett) as he unravels a twisted case of entrapment during which Daniel (Pilon) is pressured right into a harmful drug deal and is sentenced to 100 years in a Thai jail. As he endures torture and abuse, the journalist has to trace down the shady cops and combat for Daniel’s freedom. Saban Films partnered with Highland Film Group on the venture from script to stage.
“We are so proud to have been involved with this film since its early stages,” Saban Films President Bill Bromiley mentioned. “Our audiences will be captivated by every twist and turn of this gripping story as Daniel Roby does a brilliant job bringing it to life.”
Bromiley and Jonathan Saba negotiated the deal for Saban Films together with Highland Film Group’s Arianne Fraser on behalf of the filmmakers.
Saban’s current movies embrace Hilary Swank’s “The Homesman,” Kevin Smith’s “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot,” Marc Meyers’ “We Summon the Darkness,” Bruce Willis’ “Breach” and Michael Caine’s “Twist.”
