Although initially tapped for an immersive theatrical Barco Escape rollout as stated last year, Wednesday’s news of stunt coordinator-turned-filmmaker Brian Smrz’s sophomore action thriller, 24 Hours To Live, makes no mention of it. That’s not to say that may change, but as it stands however, expect a release in due time with the film’s reported acquisition by Saban Films at Cannes.
Zachary Dean’s script sees Hawke in the role of a career assassin who is given a chance at redemption when he is subsequently revived after being killed on his latest mission in South Africa. Mr. Six and Looper co-star, actress Xu Qing, and actors Paul Anderson, Liam Cunningham and Rutger Hauer also star with John Wick producer Basil Iwanyk of Thunder Road Pictures producing as are financier Fundemental Films’s own Mark Gao and Gregory Ouanhon. Kent Kubena, Jon Kuyper, Jonathan Fuhrman and Gary Glushon serve as executive producers.
“We love the film,” said Bromiley. “It’s the kind of high-octane thriller we’ve come to know and understand. We’ve been following this projejct from the script stage and are very excited we were able to make a deal.”
Fundamental Films’ Gao said: “We’re thrilled to be partnered with the team at Saban who are just as passionate and excited as we are to share this wild ride with everyone.”
