Saban Films is closing in on a North American distribution deal for Pixie, a comedy thriller that stars Olivia Cooke and Alec Baldwin.
Pixie also stars Ben Hardy, Daryl McCormack and Colm Meaney, with Barnaby Thompson directing from a script by Preston Thompson (Kids in Love). The pic centers on a character played by Cooke who wants to avenge her mother’s death by masterminding a heist.
Her plans go awry and she finds herself on the run across the wild Irish countryside with two young men, played by Hardy and McCormack, who are in over their own heads and being chased by a psychotic hitman and a gang of gun-toting priests. Pixie has to pit her wits against everyone, taking on the patriarchy to claim the right to shape her own life.
James Clayton is producing Pixie with Peter Touche, while Samantha Allwinton executive produces.
Jonathan Saba and Bill Bromiley negotiated the deal for Saban Films, along with Endeavor Content working on behalf of the filmmakers.
Endeavor Content is also handling international sales. Paramount Pictures is releasing Pixie in the UK and Ireland.
