Saban Films Acquires Most Wanted, Starring Josh Hartnett

-

Saban Films has announced they will distribute Most Wanted, a crime thriller starring Antoine Olivier Pilon (Mommy), Jim Gaffigan (Super Troopers, Chappaquiddick) and Josh Hartnett (Lucky Number Slevin, Pearl Harbor) in the U.S. this summer. The movie was previously titled Target Number One.

Inspired by a true story, the film was written and directed by Daniel Roby (Hold Your Breath) and produced by André Rouleau and Valérie d’Auteuil under their Caramel Films banner. Saban Films partnered with Highland Film Group on the project from the script stage.

Most Wanted follows an investigative journalist (Hartnett) as he unravels a twisted case of entrapment wherein a guy from the wrong side of the tracks, Daniel (Pilon), is forced into a dangerous drug deal against his will and is sentenced to 100 years in a Thai prison.

As Daniel endures torture and abuse, the journalist must track down the shady undercover cops benefiting off the conspiracy, while also fighting for Daniel’s freedom.

Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley said, “We are so proud to have been involved with this film since its early stages. 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.”

Bill Bromiley and Jonathan Saba negotiated the deal for Saban Films along with Highland Film Group’s Arianne Fraser on behalf of the filmmakers.

The 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.

Saban Films’ upcoming slate includes: Marc Meyers’ We Summon the Darkness, starring Alexandra Daddario and Johnny Knoxville; Nicol Paone’s Friendsgiving with Malin Akerman, Christine Taylor, Jane Seymour, Kat Dennings and Chelsea Peretti; John Suits’ Breach starring Bruce Willis; and Twist starring Michael Caine, Lena Headey and Rita Ora.
