Saban Films Dates Thomas Jane’s ‘Stand Off’ for February

Year-old Saban Films has set first-quarter release dates for three movies, starting with “Stand Off,” starring Laurence Fishburne and Thomas Jane, on Feb. 26.

Jane portrays a troubled veteran who gets a chance at redemption by protecting a 12-year-old girl from an assassin, played by Fishburne, after she witnesses a murder.

Saban will release the thriller “Backtrack,” starring Adrien Brody and Sam Neill, on March 11. Bob Nelson’s directorial debut “The Confirmation,” starring Clive Owen, Maria Bello, Patton Oswalt and Jaeden Lieberher in a family drama, on March 18.

Each film will be released theatrically into about a dozen markets along with a day-and-date launch on premium VOD.

Saban Films launched last year with the release of “The Homesman,” starring Tommy Lee Jones and Hilary Swank, which took in $2.4 million domestically with 222 sites at its widest point of release.

Its other releases have included “Tracers,” starring Taylor Lautner; Philip Martin’s “The Forger,” starring John Travolta; “American Heist,” starring Hayden Christensen; “Some Kind of Beautiful,” starring Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek and Jessica Alba; “Man Up” starring Simon Pegg and Lake Bell; and “MI-5,” starring Kit Harington, Jennifer Ehle and Tuppence Middleton.
