Millennium picks up Schumacher pic

Nicolas Cage, Nicole Kidman star in thriller

Millennium Entertainment has acquired U.S. rights to Joel Schumacher’s thriller “Trespass,” starring Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman, and plans a fall release.

Pic also stars Ben Mendelsohn, Cam Gigandet and Liana Liberato.

Karl Gajdusek wrote the screenplay for “Trespass” for the Nu Image/Millennium Entertainment project, produced by Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Danny Dimbort, Irwin Winkler, David Winkler, Boaz Davidson, Rene Besson, and Matthew F. Leonetti Jr.

Story centers on a man who has everything — a beautiful wife, a teenage daughter, a lavish estate — and is confronted with the reality of losing it all when he and his family become the victims of a vicious home invasion.

“Trespass” is the fourth collaboration between Cage and Nu Image/Millennium Entertainment following “Drive Angry,” “The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” and “The Wicker Man.”

Millennium, founded in April 2010 and led by Bill Lee, has been beefing up its release schedule recently with two other titles set for fall release — legal drama “Puncture,” starring Chris Evans and directed by Adam Kassen and Mark Kassen; and Elgin James’ “Little Birds,” starring Juno Temple, Kay Panabaker, with Kate Bosworth and Leslie Mann.

The company’s first theatrical release came in April with “Trust,” starring Clive Owen, Catherine Keener and Viola Davis.

Millennium operates a library of more than 1,000 titles including “Paris, Je t’aime,” “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” and “Shadows and Lies.”

Nu Image Inc. is the parent company of Nu image/Millenium Films, Millenium Entertainment, Millenium Studios in Louisiana and Nu Boyana Studios in Bulgaria.
