Grindstone will handle the project that follows a support group of killers and hitmen who are thrown into a tailspin after a prominent senator is murdered by, they suspect, one of their own.

Killers Anonymous, teaming newly minted Oscar winner Gary Oldman and Jessica Alba, has been picked up by Fabrication Films for worldwide sales, with Grindstone Entertainment Group taking North American rights ahead of AFM.

Tommy Flanagan and Rhyon Nicole Brown also star in the drama, in which a support group of killers and hitmen is thrown into a tailspin after a prominent senator is murdered by, they suspect, one of their own.

The project, directed by Martin Owen (Let’s Be Evil), was shot in London from a script by Owen, Elizabeth Morris and Seth Johnson.

The deal was brokered by Miriam Elchanan, Fabrication's senior vp sales and acquisitions, and Barry Brooker, Stan Wertlieb and Ryan Black for Grindstone.

"Killers Anonymous is a stylish thriller with some great action sequences and is very high concept," says Elchanan. "The script really grabbed our attention and has attracted remarkable star power with tremendous talent. With Gary Oldman having just secured an Oscar win for best actor and Jessica Alba, whose talent brings a whole new element to this project, we could not be happier to represent this film to buyers."

Matt Williams is producing for Goldfinch Studios alongside CEO Kirsty Bell. Executive producers are Doug Urbanski, Jonathan Willis and Phil McKenzie. Fabrication will oversee worldwide sales excluding China and the U.K., which has been retained by Goldfinch.
