Brad Silberling will direct Brendan Gleeson and Abbie Cornish in the dramatic thriller about the relationship between a war criminal and his maid.

Silberling wrote the screenplay and will produce through his Reveal Entertainment label with Disruptive Media and producers Chris Miller, James Burke and Michael Richter. 

David Lonner serves as executive producer and the producers have earmarked an autumn start in Belgrade, Serbia. 

Radiant Films International president and CEO Mimi Steinbauer will commence pre-sales on the Croisette later this month.

“There’s no greater pleasure than crafting a tale for brilliant actors to sink their teeth into, and with Brandon and Abbie, I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot,” Silberling said. “Watching them go toe-to-toe in this suspenseful tightrope walk of veiled intentions, cat and mouse psychology, and desperate gambling for human contact - it will be a filmmaker’s dream to capture.

“Having Mimi and her Radiant team squarely behind the film gives me a tremendous sense of security for the picture as it makes its way out into the world.”

“Brad has written one of the smartest scripts I have read in awhile,” Steinbauer added. “It’s an intelligent, complex story and a great character study of people in conflict. Brendan and Abbie are perfectly cast and in Brad’s hands we expect great things from this thrilling film.”
