Millennium Nabs U.S. Rights to Ben Barnes Drama ‘God Only Knows’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Millennium has picked up U.S. rights to thriller “God Only Knows,” starring Ben Barnes as a Boston criminal.

Leighton Meester, Harvey Keitel, Toby Jones, Kenny Wormald and Slaine also star. “God Only Knows” was produced by Matthew Chausse and was shot in Rhode Island and Boston last fall.

James Mottern (“Trucker”) directed from a script by Emilio Mauro, whose upcoming Fox series “The Middleman” is exec produced by Ben Affleck.

Story centers on an ambitious young man running with the Boston crime syndicate who realizes that the glory days of the Mafia are long gone. Without telling his boss (played by Keitel), he decides to strike out on his own and expand the business — putting himself and everyone he loves in grave danger.

Millennium Entertainment’s Tristen Tuckfield negotiated the deal with Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films and Adam Davids. Synchronicity Entertainment, a division of The Solution Entertainment Group, is representing the film internationally at the Cannes Film Market.
