AFM: Emmett/Furla/Oasis Boards ‘Bus 757’

Emmett/Furla/Oasis will produce and finance “Bus 757” from writer/producer Stephen Sepher, with production scheduled to begin next year.

The $15 million action thriller was unveiled Wednesday during the first day of the American Film Market, where international markets are being offered for sale.

Producers are Randall Emmett (pictured above), George Furla, Alexander Tabrizi and Sepher. No director is attached yet.

Story is set in Las Vegas, centered on a card dealer with a past, who puts a crew together to rob a bank and hijack a city bus as collateral. Sepher wrote the script.

Brandon Grimes, Daniel Grodnik and Beth Holden-Garland are exec producing.

Emmett/Furla/Oasis reached a deal in September with Belgian financier Corsan NV, under which Corsan will invest $125 million in a slate of films including Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” and “The Irishman.”  The coin will also be used to finance Bruce Willis actioner “Expiration” and Vin Diesel’s “The Last Witch Hunter.”

Emmett and Furla also found new financing from the Middle East in July by selling an undisclosed stake in itself to Dubai-based Oasis Ventures Entertainment.  As a result of that investment, Emmett/Furla was re-named Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films.

Emmett/Furla specializes in backing mid-budget action films. Its slate includes “2 Guns,” Lionsgate releases “The Frozen Ground,” starring Nicolas Cage and John Cusack, and “Escape Plan,” with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. The banner is also a financier on Peter Berg’s “Lone Survivor.”
