Col Tristar finds ‘Savior’

Studio grabs domestic rights IEG war drama

Columbia Tristar Motion Picture Group has acquired all domestic rights to Initial Entertainment Group’s war drama “Savior.” The company also has picked up distribution rights in several foreign territories, including Australia.

The Oliver Stone-Janet Yang/Ixtlan production stars Dennis Quaid, Nastassja Kinski and Stellan Skarsgard. Peter (Gaga) Antonijevic helmed the pic, which was scripted by Rorbert Orr.

The film focuses on an American mercenary hired by the Serbs who finds redemption when he is forced to protect a newborn Croatian baby during the Bosnian conflict.

The film was budgeted at about $6 million, according to sources, and was fully financed by IEG. It was exec produced by Cindy Cowan, IEG president of production and acquisitions

Columbia TriStar plans a late fall domestic theatrical release for the picture.

The pickup marks the second recent domestic sale for IEG, which last week closed a deal with Polygram for Peter Berg’s “Very Bad Things.”
