Aaron Paul’s ‘Hellion’ Heading for Cannes

VMI Worldwide has acquired Aaron Paul’s drama “Hellion” for all international territories and will introduce the movie during the Cannes Film Market.

Directed by Kat Candler, “Hellion” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and played at South by Southwest in the Festival Favorites section.

Besides Paul, the film stars Juliette Lewis and Josh Wiggins (pictured above).

Candler directed from her own screenplay, which follows 13-year-old Jacob Wilson (Wiggins in his feature film debut) who is obsessed with heavy metal, dirt bike racing and partaking in the occasional act of vandalism with his band of delinquents. Paul plays his father who’s still reeling from the loss of his wife.

“Hellion” was executive produced by Jeff Nichols, Sarah Green, Janice Beard, Tanner Beard, Suzanne Weinert, and co-executive produced by Aaron Paul. The film features a soundtrack with songs from Metallica, Slayer and the Sword.
