Nicolas Hoult’s action thriller “Collide” has been acquired by Open Road Films for U.S. distribution from IM Global.
The film, directed by Eran Creevy, also stars Felicity Jones, Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley. It hits theaters on April 1.
“Collide” was financed by IM Global and China’s DMG Entertainment, with additional financing by Sycamore Pictures.
Producers are Joel Silver through his Silver Pictures banner, along with Ben Pugh and Rory Aitken via 42, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones via Automatik, and Action Concept. The feature was shot entirely in Germany with support from DFFF, the German Federal Film Fund and NRW, the North Rhine-Westphalia funding entity.
Hoult and Jones portray a young American couple plunged into a game of cat and mouse across Germany when they find themselves caught between ruthless criminals (played by Hopkins and Kingsley).
The project was previously called “Autobahn.”
