Saban Films has announced that they have acquired North American rights along with Australia, New Zealand, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, France, South Africa, and Scandinavia rights to the Jesse Atlas directed Soul Assassin starring Bruce Willis (Cosmic Sin). Atlas wrote the revenge thriller alongside Aaron Wolfe, based on their short Let Them Die Like Lovers. Jeff Elliott (Beast of Burden) produced, and 120dB Films co-financed the film with Elliott’s Brickell and Broadbridge.
The film follows a former black-ops soldier who takes the place of a man who died as part of an experimental military program, to find out who killed him. The thriller marks the latest collaboration between Saban Films and Willis, following Chuck Russell’s recently announced Paradise City, Jared Cohn’s Reactor, and the recently released Cosmic Sin and Breach.
Soul Assassin also stars Nomzamo Mbatha (Coming 2 America) and Barry Jay Minoff (Exposure, Among the Shadows). Principal photography recently wrapped with the film set for release in 2022.
