Scott Eastwood’s ‘Dangerous’ Sells to Lionsgate for U.S., U.K.

Exclusively from Variety:

Scott Eastwood-fronted action thriller “Dangerous” has sold into major markets, including the U.S., Canada and the U.K.

Lionsgate has snapped up the pic from International Film Trust (IFT) for the U.S. and U.K., and it has bought the title from Minds Eye Entertainment for Canada. Additional territories sold by IFT include Latin America (California), Benelux (Dutch Filmworks), Australia (Defiant Screen), Italy (Leone), South Korea (Joy N Cinema) and Greece (Tanweer).

Lionsgate will release the film as a multi-platform title.

Directed by David Hackl (“Saw V”), the film follows a reformed sociopath (Eastwood) who, after the death of his brother, heads to a remote island that soon falls under siege from a deadly gang of mercenaries. Forced to fend for himself, he discovers their role in his brother’s demise and sets off on a relentless quest for vengeance.

The cast also includes Mel Gibson in a key supporting role, along with Kevin Durand, Famke Janssen and Tyrese Gibson. Other actors rounding out the cast include Canadian actors Brenda Bazinet (“Shoot the Messenger”), Ryan Robbins (“Sanctuary”), Brendan Fletcher (“Braven”), Leanne Lapp (“iZombie”), Chad Rook (“Siren”) and Brock Morgan (“Cardinal”).

The U.S. and U.K. deals were brokered by Lauren Bixby of Lionsgate, and Michael Benaroya and Christian De Gallegos on behalf of the filmmakers. Meanwhile, Canadian rights were brokered by Kevin DeWalt for Minds Eye Entertainment.

The film was backed by a number of Canadian funds and tax breaks, including British Columbia’s Film Incentive BC, the Creative Saskatchewan Feature Film Production Grant Program and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit. The film was shot in Kelowna, Quilchena, Kamloops and Lavington, all in interior British Columbia in western Canada. The project is currently in post-production.—

“Dangerous” is written by Christopher Borelli, Hackl and Seth Renshaw, and produced by Kevin DeWalt and Ben DeWalt for Minds Eye Entertainment and by Douglas Falconer for Falconer Pictures, with Michael Benaroya executive producing for his Benaroya Pictures. International Film Trust (IFT), Invico Capital, and 3 Point Capital are financing with IFT selling international rights.

IFT previously sold the film into Germany (Koch), Spain (You Planet), the Middle East (Eagle), CIS (Top Film), Eastern Europe (Programme 4 Media) and Portugal (Pris).

‘Wrath of Man’ Sets Release Date

‘Wrath of Man’ Sets Release Date

Collider has exclusively learned Scott’s film Wrath of Man with Jason Statham and Josh Hartnett has set a release date of April 23, 2021.

Read the article below:

As Los Angeles theaters prepare to reopen this weekend, Guy Ritchie’s latest action-thriller Wrath of Man has been set for release on April 23, Collider has exclusively learned.

Jason Statham stars in the heist movie alongside Josh Hartnett, Scott Eastwood, Holt McCallany, Jeffrey Donovan, Laz Alonso, Raul Castillo, Niamh Algar and Post Malone.

The film is based on the 2004 French action-thriller Le Convoyeur, which followed a security guard who has an ulterior motive when he takes a job working for an armored truck company. The revenge-driven remake follows a mysterious man named H (Statham) who goes to work for an armored truck company that is responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars around Los Angeles each week.

Miramax produced Wrath of Man with MGM, which means the film will be distributed by United Artists Releasing. It will arrive in theaters just one week after Mortal Kombat (which will also be available on HBO Max) and two weeks before Disney unveils Marvel’s Black Widow, so it does have a window to do brisk business on the big screen.

Miramax CEO Bill Block and Andrew Goluv produced the film with Ivan Atkinson, who co-wrote the script with Ritchie and Marn Davies. Wrath of Man serves as Ritchie’s follow-up to The Gentlemen, and the director has already re-teamed with Statham (and Hartnett) on another movie titled Five Eyes.

Ritchie is coming off the global success of Aladdin, while Statham is riding hot off the Fast and Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw as well as The Meg, and fans are eager to see their latest collaboration following films like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. Wrath of Man sounds right up my alley, and I suspect I won’t be alone on that front, as these kinds of heist movies always seem to find an audience.

Charlie Day and Jenny Slate are set to lead an Amazon rom-com from the writers behind Love, Simon and This Is Us.

Gina Rodriguez, Scott Eastwood, Manny Jacinto and Clark Backo will also star in the project that will be directed by Jason Orley (Big Time Adolescence) from a script by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger.

The story follows Emma (Slate) and Peter (Day), who thought they were on the precipice of life’s biggest moments — marriage, kids and houses in the suburbs — until their respective partners dumped them. In their 30s and terrified they have missed their shot at happily ever after, Emma and Peter are horrified to learn that their partners have already moved on. With no prospects on the horizon and the threat of dying alone hanging over their heads, they hatch a desperate plan to put an end to their exes’ new relationships and win them back.

Jami Gertz, Jordan Carlos, Midori Francis, Mason Gooding, Isabel May and Luke David Blumm round out the movie, which is due to begin shooting early next month in Atlanta.
