Toa Fraser’s New Hostage Thriller, 6 DAYS, Lands Multiterritorial Deals With A Fall U.S. Release
Director Toa Fraser’s new hostage thriller, 6 Days, has long been completed with a cast that primarily includes Jamie Bell, Abbie Cornish and Mark Strong. Official images and promotional assets began rolling out a few years ago with release details yet to be known until this week with reports of sweeping international territories by XYZ Films which also includes the U.S. via Vertical Entertainment.
In April 1980 armed gunmen stormed the Iranian Embassy in Princes Gate, London and took all inside hostage. Over the next six days a tense standoff took place, all the while a group of highly trained soldiers from the SAS prepared for a raid the world had never seen the likes of and which would change the world forever.
“Jamie, Abbie and Mark put forth excellent performances,” Vertical co-president Rich Goldberg said. “We cannot wait begin working with the 6 Days producing team and XYZ Films again to bring this true story to audiences later this year.”
Metcalfe added; “I am excited to be working Vertical, Netflix and all of our distribution partners to bring this incredible true story to audiences worldwide.
“The events surrounding the siege at No.16 Princes Gate, London, in May 1980 were unprecedented for the time and Toa Fraser’s adaptation of the events reveals a tense, dramatic and confrontational story that could not be more relevant to our world today.”
