Currently in post-production, the film also stars Matthew Goode, Charles Dance and Mark Strong.

Producers are Teddy Schwarzman of Black Bear Pictures and Nora Grossman and Ido Ostrowsky of Bristol Automotive, with Peter Heslop co-producing.

FilmNation is handling international rights at Cannes.

The acquisition deal was negotiated by Al Munteanu for SquareOne Entertainment and by FilmNation Entertainment.
