Arclight closes UK, Germany on thriller The Courier
Arclight Films president of sales and acquisitions Mark Lindsay has closed a pair of key territories on action thriller The Courier.
eOne has added another title to its busy slate after taking UK rights and Constantin will release the film in Germany.
Hany Abu-Assad, director of the Oscar-nominated Paradise Now, directed from a screenplay by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Mickey Rourke and Josie Ho star in the story of an international courier who delivers things to people who ordinarily cannot be reached or do not want to be reached. Ho plays a woman he encounters who has a mysterious past.
Arclight managing director Gary Hamilton produced TheCourier alongside Mike Gabrawy, Cary Brokaw. Vince Newman and Tucker Tooley. Morgan will serve as executive producer with Carsten Lorenz, Jason Hewitt, Michael Arata, John Calhoun and Butch Kaplan.
Lindsay’s EFM slate includes the Joe Dante teen comedy-horror love story MonsterLove and drama BoomBoomBoom with Shirley MacLaine, Christopher Walken and Ashley Greene.
