RLJE Films has acquired all US rights from Highland Film Group to Vaughn Stein’s noir thriller Terminal starring Oscar nominee Margot Robbie.
Simon Pegg, Mike Myers, Max Irons and Dexter Fletcher round out the key cast on the story of a band of characters who inhabit a sprawling anonymous city where a criminal mastermind plots revenge.
Terminal follows the fate of two assassins, a terminally ill teacher, and a waitress who leads a double life.
Stein wrote the screenplay and Robbie and Tom Ackerley produced with Josey McNamara through their LuckyChap Entertainment, David Barron of BeaglePug, Highland Film Group’s Arianne Fraser, Molly Hassell, and Teun Hilte.
RLJE Films plans a spring theatrical release and negotiated the deal with CAA and Alana Crow at Highland Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers.
“We’re excited to work with Margot Robbie, who not only stars in, but also produced this amazing film,” Mark Ward, RLJE Films chief acquisitions officer, said. “With her passion for the project, Margot leads a talented cast who takes audiences for a mystery ride in this highly anticipated thriller.”
“I am delighted and excited to be working with RLJE on Terminal, who share both our vision and passion for the film,” Stein said. “We are all extremely proud of Terminal and look forward to sharing it with the US audiences later this year.”
RLJE Films’ recent releases include Once Upon A Time In Venice starring Bruce Willis, Bushwick with Dave Bautista and Brittany Snow, Pilgrimage with Tom Holland, Jon Bernthal and Richard Armitage, and Brawl In Cell Block 99 starring Vince Vaughn, Don Johnson and Jennifer Carpenter.
Fraser and Delphine Perrier’s Highland Film Group slate includes Berlin, I Love You with Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, and Jim Sturgess; Jon Avnet’s Three Christs with Richard Gere; and Scott Mann’s Final Score starring Dave Bautista and Pierce Brosnan.
