Stars visit ‘St. Vincent’

Brosnan, Thornton, Bello, Ribisi join Hill thriller

Pierce Brosnan, Billy Bob Thornton, Maria Bello and Giovanni Ribisi are blessing helmer Walter Hill’s “St. Vincent.”

The crime thriller is being financed by Premier National Studios, Quickfire Films and Stuart Ford’s IM Global, which also is handling international sales and shopping the title at Cannes.

Hill (“48 Hours,” “Southern Comfort”) begins lensing in Detroit on July 12 from a script by Cameron Young.

Announcement was made by producer Jon Turtle and IM Global CEO Ford.

Along with Turtle, producers are Claudio Castravelli and Irish Dreamtime’s Beau St. Clair.

Ford, James Atherton, Stephen Simmons and Gus Palkovi are exec producing.

“St. Vincent” follows a hitman (Brosnan) who goes undercover as a priest to get close to his target, a gangland traitor (Thornton). The hitman soon discovers that playing the good guy is more dangerous than being a mob killer.

IM Global reports brisk sales on the film.

IM Global’s slate of titles in post-production include Oren Peli’s “Area 51,” Will Ferrell starrer “Everything Must Go,” James Wan’s “Astral” and John Cusack thriller “The Factor.”

In active pre-production are Halle Berry starrer “Dark Tide,” Kevin Costner directing and starring vehicle “A Little War of Our Own,” Dwayne Johnson topliner “Protection” and Madonna’s directorial debut “W.E.”

Earlier this month, IM Global announced that India’s Reliance Big Pictures had acquired a majority interest in the company.
