Donnybrook helmer Tim Sutton’s new western, The Last Son, is currently selling hard for multiple buyers via the Cannes market this week. The film, starring Sam Worthington, Colson Baker, Thomas Jane, and Heather Graham has since landed home at Redbox Entertainment for North American rights from sales agent VMI Worldwide; Other territories include France (Ace Entertainment), Italy (Blue Swan), German-speaking Europe (Constantin), Australia/New Zealand (Defiant Screen Entertainment), Middle East (Phoenicia Pictures International), and Africa, Benelux and Turkey (SPI International).
Set in the Sierra Nevada in the late 19th century, THE LAST SON centers on Isaac LeMay (Worthington), a murderous outlaw cursed by a terrible prophecy, hunting down his offspring to prevent his own murder before targeting his son Cal (Baker). With bounty hunters and the enigmatic US Officer Solomon (Jane) on their tail, all are set on a collision course toward a brutal game of cat-and-mouse.
Sutton directed the film on location in Montana last year from a Black List script by Greg Johnson, and is currently in post-production. The film, which is part of the Redbox Entertainment slate of original content aimed at audiences nationwide, including Redbox’s 40 million customers, will be released simultaneously in theaters and widely available On Demand later this year.
“With an outstanding ensemble cast, talented director, and an incredible story, we’re excited to be a part of this stellar production,” said Galen Smith, CEO of Redbox.
“We are pleased to be partnering with Redbox on the release of the picture; they have been a part of The Last Son team since the beginning,” added Andre Relis, CEO of VMI Worldwide.
The deal was negotiated by Marc Danon, Head of Original Content for Redbox Entertainment, and JD Beaufils and Andre Relis of VMI Worldwide.
