In its second Cannes acquisition, Saban Films has bought North American rights to action-thriller “I Am Wrath,” starring John Travolta, from Hannibal Classics.

Year-old Saban teamed with Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions four days ago to buy U.S. rights to “A Hologram for the King,” starring Tom Hanks.

I Am Wrath,” directed by Chuck Russell, also stars Christopher Meloni, Sam Trammell, Amanda Schull and Rebecca De Mornay.

Patriot Films financed. Producers are Michael Mendelsohn, Rob Carliner and Johnny Martin, with Hannibal’s Richard Rionda Del Castro and Patricia Eberle exec producing.

Travolta plays an engineer who witnesses thugs murdering his wife (played by De Mornay) and is haunted by the image of her dying in his arms. When law enforcement fails to bring the killers to justice, he takes matters into his own hands.
