Imagenation, Participant team for 'Game'

Doug Liman's thriller to star Sean Penn, Naomi Watts

LONDON -- Abu Dhabi's $1 billion production arm Imagenation has said Doug Liman's "Fair Game," starring Sean Penn and Naomi Watts, will mark a third project to benefit from investment as part of its $250 million production pact with Participant Media.

Imagenation and Participant have partnered with River Road Entertainment on the political thriller, which recently wrapped principal photography.

Written by Jez and John-Henry Butterworth and produced by Bill Pohlad, Janet Zucker, Jerry Zucker, Akiva Goldsman, Liman and Jez Butterworth, "Fair Game" is billed as a political thriller.

Imagenation Abu Dhabi CEO Ed Borgerding said: "We are very pleased to join forces with Participant Media and River Road on this powerful account of one woman's struggle to speak truth to power."

River Road Entertainment President Mitch Horwits said he was thrilled to have Participant and Imagenation Abu Dhabi as partners on the project.

It follows investment by Imagenation and Participant Media in Breck Eisner's "The Crazies" and Roger Kumble's "Furry Vengeance" in May this year.
