'Confession' stars Sutherland, Hurt

Image Entertainment is in final negotiations to obtain rights to release Web series “The Confession,” starring Kiefer Sutherland.

The 10-part series will be reformatted into a feature-length film. Image, which will have both the home entertainment and digital rights, made the announcement Tuesday at Cannes.

“This Web series is truly unique and has gained a dedicated following since its debut in late March,” said Bill Bromiley, chief acquisitions officer.

Each episode is five to nine minutes long. Story follows a hitman (Sutherland) and a priest (John Hurt), and begins on Christmas Eve, when the hitman enters a church to confess his sins to the priest, followed by a series of flashbacks.
