Killer Elite Gets Distributor for North America
It’s a good day for Yvonne Strahovski! Not only is Chuck‘s renewal pretty much a done deal, but her movie, Killer Elite, has been picked up for distribution in North America!ComingSoon.net reports that Open Road Films signed on for a wide release (2000+ theaters) in North America this autumn.
Killer Elite, an action thriller in which Yvonne Strahovski co-stars with Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro, was inspired by true events. The film follows Danny (Statham), one of the world’s most skilled special-ops agents. Lured out of self-imposed exile to execute a near-impossible feat of retribution and personal salvation, Danny reassembles his old team of operatives to help rescue his former mentor (De Niro), and to penetrate the highly feared and respected military unit, the British Special Air Service (SAS). Facing off against a covert group of ex-SAS soldiers known as “The Feather Men,” who, under their leader Spike (Owen), provide a deadly cloak of security around all SAS members, Danny and his team must take down a rogue cell of solider assassins before their actions result in a global political meltdown.
The film’s whirlwind action crosses the globe from Australia to Paris, Wales, London, Dubai and Oman. The story is based on Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ controversial non-fiction novel “The Feather Men.”
