Saban Films has acquired U.S. rights to thriller Standoff, starring Laurence Fishburne.
Standoff follows a troubled veteran who is tasked with protecting a 12-year-old girl (Ella Ballentine) from an assassin, played by Fishburne. Thomas Jane also stars in the film.
“Standoff is a strong, exciting film that has all the elements which make it a perfect fit for the Saban slate,” said Saban president Bill Bromiley.
The film was written and directed by The Last House on the Left scribe Adam Alleca, with Tove Christensen, Lee Clay, Eric Gozlan and Michael Wexler acting as producers.
Bromiley and Ness Saban negotiated the deal on behalf of Saban Films with Paradigm on behalf of the filmmakers.
Saban is planning a theatrical release for sometime in the first quarter of 2016.
