Corsan CEO Paul Breusl is producing along with Brody, through his Fable House Production company. Corsan World Sales is launching sales at the Toronto Film Festival. Paradigm will handle domestic rights.
Brian Tucker wrote the screenplay for the film, which has not found a director yet. Brody portrays a former CIA agent, who wakes up in a hospital bed after a failed hit and finds out he has been poisoned — leaving him only 24 hours to find out who his murderer is and see the woman he loves one last time.
It’s third time that Brody has teamed up with Corsan and Breuls following Paul Haggis’ “Third Person” and Lee Tamahori’s “Emperor.”
Brody recently toplined the History Channel miniseries “Houdini,” and starred in and produced “Dragon Blade,” which grossed more than $120 million in its first month in China. Brody appears alongside Salma Hayek in “Septembers of Shiraz,” which is premiering at the Toronto Film Festival, and the romantic comedy “Manhattan Love Story, which he co-wrote and co-produced with Chinese producer-financiers Hero Films.
Belgium-based Corsan is in pre-production on “The Prince of Coo,” and developing “Confessions of an Economic Hitman” and the “All Quiet on the Western Front” remake. Shooting for “Expiration” starts in March in Europe.
Brody is repped by Paradigm.
