Col TriStar gains ‘Suspicion’ rights

Pic stars Hackman, Freeman

Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group has acquired all domestic rights and various international territory rights to “Under Suspicion,” the Stephen Hopkins-helmed pic starring Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman.

Pic, produced under Freeman’s Revelation Entertainment banner by Anne Marie Gillen and Lori McCreary, and financed by TF1 Intl. Sales, is a remake of Claude Miller’s 1981 film “Garde a Vue,” a film from TF1’s library.

Sources say Columbia TriStar will more than likely release “Under Suspicion” through a third party, as it did when it acquired domestic rights to Initial Entertainment Group’s war drama “Savior” and released the film through Lions Gate.

Deal was brokered by CAA’s John Ptak and WMA’s Cassian Elwes.
