Goldrush Entertainment is backing the thriller on the runway for a summer shoot in Ontario, Canada. Paradigm arranged financing and represents North American rights.
International rights are open in the run-up to Cannes on the story of a war veteran armed with a shotgun and one shell who must protect a child witness in a stand-off with an assassin.
Goldrush’s Eric Gozlan and Lee Clay of First Point Entertainment are producing Standoff.
Adam Alleca makes his feature directorial debut. He wrote Home starring Topher Grace for Appian Way and Blumhouse Entertainment and Cell starring John Cusack and Sam Jackson for the Genre Company and Benaroya Pictures, both of which wrapped recently.
Jane stars in Somnia, which just sold to Relativity Media, and has completed filming on The Veil for Universal Pictures and Blumhouse. He stars in Vice opposite Bruce Willis for Lionsgate and Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and will next be seen in the miniseries Texas Rising for History.
Clay and Gozlan previously collaborated on Beautiful Boy starring Maria Bello and Michael Sheen.
Paradigm and Jamie Afifi at Ziffren Brittenham represent Jane, while UTA and Untitled Entertainment handle Alleca.
