Well Go USA Entertainment has acquired all North American rights from XYZ Films to Erik Matti’s Director’s Fortnight entry On The Job.

The Filipino crime action-thriller receives its world premiere on Friday and Well Go plans to release it in the autumn.

Matti and Michiko Yamamoto wrote the story inspired by a true-life corruption scandal involving the temporary release of inmates so they could work as contract killers for crooked politicians.

Piolo Pascual, Gerald Anderson, Rayver Cruz, Shaina Magdayao and Empress Schuck star alongside Joel Torre, Angel Aquino, Vivian Velez, Joey Marquez, Leo Martinez, Michael de Mesa, Al Tantay and Niño Muhlach.

On The Job was produced by Matti’s Reality Entertainment and Star Cinema.
