GUNNER: Hemsworth And Freeman Featured In First Look As Deals Land At Cannes
Highland Film Group has locked distribution deals in key international territories for action thriller Gunner. The new film is directed by Dimitri Logothetis from a script by Gary Scott Thompson.
Gunner follows Special Ops veteran Lee Gunner (Luke Hemsworth) who takes his two sons on a fishing trip to reconnect. The trip soon turns awry when the boys stumble upon a massive drug running operation and are kidnapped by Dobbs, the son of the gang’s kingpin Kendric Ryker (Morgan Freeman) who runs the organization from prison. With no one but himself to retaliate and with elite combat skills they won’t see coming, an enraged Gunner wreaks havoc to rescue his two sons from Ryker’s gang. You don’t cross Gunner!
The deals sealed this week include Daro Film Distribution for Germany and Eastern Europe, Premiere TV Distribution for Benelux, Spentzos Film for Greece, IIF for Italy, NOS Lusomundo Audiovisuais for Portugal, NonStop Entertainment for Scandanavia, Inopia Films for Spain, MovieBox for Turkey, Eagle Films for the Middle East, MovieCloud for Taiwan, California Filmes for Latin America, Filmfinity for South Africa and Signature Entertainment for Australia / New Zealand.
Rounding out the cast is Joseph Baena, Connor DeWolfe, Grant Feely, Sean Rogers, Yulia Klass, John Hickman, Gary Wood, Barry Minoff and Mykel Shannon Jenkins. The film is produced by Joel Shapiro (Killerman, Dear Dictator) and Logothetis, and is executive produced by Joel Cohen.
Highland Film Group is handling worldwide rights to the action pic, with production wrapping last month in Alabama. The film is financed by 120dB Films, Convergence Entertainment Group and Highland Film Group.
