The sci-fi film centers on a pilot battling to save his family.

Saban Films has acquired the North American rights to Tim Smit’s Redivider, starring Dan Stevens and Berenice Marlohe.

The sci-fi story is based on Smit’s short What’s in the Box? and is written by Charlie Kindinger and Omid Nooshin. It's set in a futuristic world where a pilot is battling to save his family after an experiment for unlimited energy, harnessing parallel universes, goes wrong.

Patrick Chu produced the film, which is in post-production, for FilmNation Entertainment alongside Smit; Sander Verdonk and Denis Wigman for CTM Films; FilmNation’s Aaron Ryder and Milan Popelka; SquareOne Entertainment’s Al Munteanu; and RainMaker Films’ Clay Pecorin, Russell Geyser and Thibaut Niels.

"Smit’s previous work in VFX is evident throughout this film, and his experience working within the action and sci-fi genre takes his feature debut to a spectacular level," said Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley. "This will be a unique film that will captivate our audiences with its heavy visuals and thought-provoking plotlines."

Ness Saban and Bromiley negotiated the deal on behalf of Saban Films, along with Robert Carney for FilmNation, who is selling the foreign rights.
