David Goyer Partners With Lakeshore, Open Road on Robot Movie ‘Miles’

Lakeshore Entertainment and Open Road Films are partnering to co-produce and co-finance the film “Miles,” which will be directed by Oliver Daly.

Filmmaker David S. Goyer, best known for his work on the “Dark Knight” trilogy, is producing through his Phantom Four company. Goyer won rights last year to Daly’s original short about an 18-year-old and a military robot.

The film will be produced by Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi, with Phantom Four’s Goyer and Kevin Turen. Principal photography will begin in late summer for an anticipated 2017 release.

Miles” centers on an 18-year-old searching for a way out of his small California town. He stumbles upon M.A.X., an escaped prototype of an advanced robot, and finds himself in an unlikely friendship. He soon becomes the target of a massive manhunt that puts him and everyone he cares about in danger.

Daly raised funds for the short through a 2014 Kickstarter campaign.

Open Road Films will release “Miles” domestically and in certain international territories together with its output partners.  Open Road’s international distributors include Sony (Eastern Europe, Canada, Greece, India, Latin America, Scandinavia, Spain, Middle East and Turkey), Telepool (Germany), Village Roadshow (Australia), eOne (U.K. and Benelux), Impuls (Switzerland), Ster Kinekor (South Africa) and Lev Films (Israel).

FilmNation Entertainment handles Open Road’s international distribution territories. Other international territories will be sold by Lakeshore International at the upcoming Cannes market.
