De Niro, Travolta set for ‘Killing Season’

Thesps to star in actioner from Millennium, Corsan

Millennium Films and Corsan Pictures have set Robert De Niro and John Travolta to star in the actioner “Killing Season.”

Mark Steven Johnson (“Ghost Rider”) will direct from a script by Evan Daugherty (“Snow White and the Huntsman”). Production starts Jan. 16. De Niro will play an American military veteran who has retreated to a remote cabin in the Appalachian Mountains, where he strikes up an unlikely friendship with a European tourist (Travolta) who’s actually a former Serbian soldier bent on revenge.

Nu Image/Millennium is taking the lead on international sales at the American Film Market this week, in consultation with Corsan.

“I’ve loved this project from the moment I read Evan Daugherty’s remarkable script,” said Corsan CEO Paul Breuls. “It’s thrilling, imaginative, unexpected and dominated by two extraordinary characters on a collision course.” “We’re excited to be co-financing and co-producing this film with Corsan, and to be working again with Robert De Niro and John Travolta,” said Nu Image/Millennium topper Avi Lerner. “We’ve never seen these two great actors on screen together before, and we’re excited to see what comes of the combination.”

Belgium-based Corsan, which recently produced and financed “The Devil’s Double,” is currently in pre-production on Roland Emmerich’s “Singularity.”

De Niro and Johnson are repped by CAA, while WME reps Travolta. UTA and FilmEngine rep Daugherty.
