Saban Films has picked up the North American rights to John Travolta‘s action-thriller I Am Wrath, directed by Chuck Russell (The Mask, Scorpion King).
Hannibal Classics struck the deal with Saban at the Cannes film market, where a teaser and other promotional materials were touted to buyers.
The movie actually being directed by Chuck Russell (“Eraser”) and Travolta will play a man out for vigilante justice after a group of corrupt cops are unable to catch his wife’s killer.
Michael Mendelsohn, Nick Vallelonga and Richard Salvatore are producing the film, which Paul Sloan wrote based on a story by Yvan Gauthier. Production is expected to start in March in Columbus, Ohio. Travolta may well hope that this proves to be his “Taken”.
Nice and dark, as it should be for the premise. Below is a new poster… the photoshopping is almost as bad as the Terminator: Genisys posters.
