Momentum Pictures has snapped up the U.S. rights to Outlaws & Angels, a western thriller from writer/director J.T. Mollner that stars Chad Michael Murray, Francesca Eastwood and Luke Wilson.

The indie also acquired all rights in Canada, Latin America and Germany. The film centers on an outlaw leader (Murray), whose gang of bank thieves is forced to hide out in a frontier family's home. After he begins to fall in love with the youngest daughter (Eastwood), a game of cat and mouse ensues when a cold-blooded bounty hunter (Wilson) closes in on their location.

The revenge tale is produced by Rosanne Korenberg, Chris Ivan Cevic and Luke Daniels.

"We're so pleased to partner with Momentum Pictures on Outlaws & Angels. Outlaws stands out as a unique take on a classic genre with incredible performances and direction and Momentum Pictures has shown how much they believe in this picture,” VMI Worldwide president Andre Relis said Monday in a statement.

Relis brokered the acquisition deal for the filmmakers, with Jessica Labi and Larry Greenberg negotiating for Momentum Pictures.
