Aaron Paul Thriller ‘Come and Find Me’ Lands at Saban Films

Saban Films has acquired North American distribution rights to the Aaron Paul-Annabelle Wallis’ thriller “Come and Find Me.”

The movie marks the feature debut of writer/director Zack Whedon, who is a producer and has penned episodes for “Halt and Catch Fire” and “Southland.” Whedon also co-created Neil Patrick Harris’ miniseries “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” with brothers Joss and Jed.

Whedon’s script appeared on the 2012 Black List. Paul plays a man who must track down the whereabouts of his mysterious girlfriend (Wallis), after he realizes she’s not who she was pretending to be.

“It’s surprising that this is Zack’s first feature,” said Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley. “His filmmaking pulls together all the elements of a great thriller – intriguing characters, clever dialogue and expert pacing. It makes sense that the script attracted such A-list talent. We love this film and know audiences will, too.”

Automatik’s Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Motion Picture Capital’s Leon Clarance and Oddfellows Entertainment’s Chris Ferguson produced “Come and Find Me.” Laure Vaysse and Jo Monk executive produced.

Bromiley and Ness Saban negotiated the deal on behalf of Saban Films. WME Global handled domestic sales and Goldcrest Films is handling international sales after acquiring rights at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival.

During Cannes, Saban Films acquired North American distribution rights to Walter Hill’s “Tomboy, a Revenger’s Tale,” starring Michelle Rodriguez, Sigourney Weaver, Tony Shalhoub, Anthony LaPaglia and Caitlin Gerard; Colm McCarthy’s “The Girl With All the Gifts,” starring Gemma Arterton, Paddy Considine, Glenn Close and Sennia Nanua; and John Michael McDonagh’s “War on Everyone,” starring Michael Peña, Alexander Skarsgård, Theo James and Tessa Thompson.
