The LA-based production and distribution company has acquired rights to writer-director Donovan Marsh’s heist thriller. Wrekin Hill has set a spring day-and-date release in North America for the South Africa-set iNumber Number, which premiered at Toronto. S’dumo Mtshali stars an honest and ambitious undercover cop who is cheated by his corrupt supervisors. He decides to infiltrate a cash-in-transit heist gang, and instead of busting them, he takes part in a one-off score. He then must face off against his partner (Presley Chweneyagae), who refuses to let him do it, and one of the gang members who recognizes him as a cop. The film was produced by Quizzical Pictures’ Harriet Gavshon, JP Potgier, Marsh and Mariki Van Der Walt and executive produced by Nim Geva and Owen Kessel. Universal Pictures bought U.S. remake rights this week.
