Lionsgate has shared the official Fatale trailer, which previews the new thriller opening in theaters on December 18, 2020. The film has been rated R for violence, sexual content, and language.
After a wild one-night stand, Derrick (Michael Ealy), a successful sports agent, watches his perfect life slowly disappear when he discovers that the sexy and mysterious woman he risked everything for, is a determined police detective (Hilary Swank) who entangles him in her latest investigation.
As he tries desperately to put the pieces together, he falls deeper into her trap, risking his family, his career, and even his life. Fatale is a suspenseful and provocative psychological thriller and an unpredictable game of cat and mouse where one mistake can change your life.
Written and produced by David Loughery (The Intruder, Lakeview Terrace, Obsessed), the film is produced by Taylor’s Hidden Empire Film Group partner Roxanne Taylor and is executive produced by partner Robert F. Smith.
Two-time Oscar nominee Dante Spinotti (L.A. Confidential, Heat) served as director of photography, marking his third collaboration with Taylor on Fatale.
Jason Constantine, Lionsgate’s President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions, said previously: “We previously acquired Deon’s thriller Traffik, and when Damon Wolf came to Lionsgate on the heels of working with Deon, he mentioned we should keep our eye on Fatale.
“He could not have been more right. We are all big fans of Deon and are thrilled to have him back at Lionsgate.
Constantine added: “This film has the heat and erotic appeal of relationship-gone-wrong thrillers like Unfaithful, Fatal Attraction or Basic Insinct. Deon Taylor has delivered a morally complex and outstanding character-driven thriller with riveting performances by Hilary Swank and Michael Ealy.”
“Damon and I had the chance to work together on The Intruder, and like a character from this new movie, he became almost obsessed with this project,” Taylor said.
“I can feel that energy and passion with the Lionsgate team and I’m excited to be working with Joe, and to be reunited with Damon, Jason and Eda and the whole entire Lionsgate film group.”
