Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Thriller ‘The Wall’ Gets March Release Date

Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions have set a March 10 release of psychological thriller “The Wall,” directed by Doug Liman and starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena.

The Wall” follows two soldiers pinned down by an Iraqi sniper, with nothing but a crumbling wall between them. Their fight becomes as much a battle of will and wits as marksmanship.

Liman directed from a script by first-time screenwriter Dwain Worrell. Production companies are Amazon Studios, Big Indie Pictures and Picrow.

The film is produced by David Bartis with Ray Angelic as exec producer and Alison Winter as associate producer. FilmNation is handling international sales.

Roadside and Amazon have been partnered on the release of Kenneth Lonergan’s awards season contender “Manchester By The Sea,” which grossed a strong $1.6 million at 48 North American locations during last weekend. “Manchester By The Sea” was named Best Picture on Tuesday by the National Board of Review and Roadside and Amazon will expand its run to 150 sites this weekend.

Roadside and Amazon have previously teamed on Whit Stillman’s “Love & Friendship” and Spike Lee’s “Chi-Raq.”

Liman’s credits include “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” “The Bourne Identity” and “Edge of Tomorrow.” Taylor-Johnson stars in Tom Ford’s “Nocturnal Animals” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Cena is a WWE star who’s appeared in “Trainwreck” and “Daddy’s Home.”
