Fishburne to star in ‘Tortured’

Lebovitz will direct crime thriller

Laurence Fishburne and Cole Hauser have signed to star in crime thriller “Tortured,” with cameras rolling Monday in Vancouver.

Five Star Pictures, Insight Film Studios and Proud Mary Entertainment are producing, with Nolan Lebovitz directing from his own script. Producers are the director’s brother, Adam Lebovitz of Five Star Pictures, along with Kirk Shaw of Insight Film Studios and Mary Aloe of Proud Mary Entertainment.

Story centers on an undercover FBI agent (Hauser) who infiltrates the world’s most powerful crime syndicate. When he cracks the inner circle, he’s assigned the task of torturing one of its accountants, played by Fishburne.

Paradigm Motion Picture Finance Group will rep North American rights for the film, while Nicolas Chartier of Voltage Pictures will handle foreign sales. Paradigm, which reps the Lebovitz siblings along with Fishburne and Hauser, packaged the film.

Feature is the fifth for Insight and Proud Mary, which have teamed on “When a Man Falls in the Forest,” starring Sharon Stone and Timothy Hutton; romantic comedy “Numb,” with Matthew Perry and Mary Steenburgen; and political action drama “Battle in Seattle,” with Charlize Theron, Woody Harrelson, Ray Liotta, Channing Tatum and Andre Benjamin.
