The film will debut theatrically at the end of the year. Peter Firth and Jennifer Ehle co-star in the film, which is a follow-up to the popular BBC television series “Spooks.” In a negative review, Variety‘s Guy Lodge faulted the picture for being a “strained, superfluous spinoff.”
Saban Films launched in 2014 with the goal of fielding between 8 to 10 films annually. Its projects include “The Homesman” with Tommy Lee Jones, “Tracers” with Taylor Lautner and “The Forger” with John Travolta, as well as upcoming releases like “American Heist” with Adrien Brody and “Some Kind of Beautiful” with Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek.
Saban Films president Bill Bromiley and Ness Saban negotiated the deal on behalf of the company with WME Global representing the filmmakers.
