Lions Gate Releasing has acquired U.S. rights to Wim Wenders’ “The Million Dollar Hotel.”
The film’s ensemble cast includes Jeremy Davies, Milla Jovovich, Mel Gibson, Jimmy Smits, Amanda Plummer, Gloria Stuart, Bud Cort, Donal Logue, Julian Sands and Tim Roth.
“The Million Dollar Hotel” focuses on a gang of outcasts and misfits who live in a decrepit downtown Los Angeles hostelry that becomes the focus of a police investigation when one of its residents comes to a grisly end. When the deceased turns out to be the son of a billionaire media magnate, every hotel inhabitant becomes a suspect in the inquiry led by an FBI hardliner (Gibson).
“The Million Dollar Hotel,” written by Nicholas Klein from a story by U2’s Bono and Klein, marks Wenders’ 20th film in a 30-year career that includes the Palme d’Or-winning “Paris, Texas” and “Wings of Desire.”
The film was produced by Deepak Nayar, Bono, Klein, Wenders and Bruce Davey. Uli Felsberg is the executive producer.
