Coming on the heels of Saban Films acquiring rights to Walter Hill’s Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale, the company just picked up another film for distribution: writer-director Zack Whedon’s feature debut Come And Find Me which stars Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad, Eye In The Sky) and Annabelle Wallis (Annabelle, X-Men: First Class) and appeared on the 2012 Black List.
The thriller, written by Whedon, follows David (Paul) who must track down the whereabouts of his mysterious girlfriend (Wallis) after he realizes she’s not who she was pretending to be.
Automatik’s Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Midnight Special), Motion Picture Capital’s Leon Clarance (Sense8) and Oddfellows Entertainment’s Chris Ferguson (Afflicted) produced the film with Laure Vaysse and Jo Monk receiving executive producer credits.
Whedon is a producer on AMC’s Halt And Catch Fire and has worked on Southland and Rubicon. He also co-created Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog with brothers Joss and Jed.
Bill Bromiley and Ness Saban negotiated the deal on behalf of Saban Films. WME Global handled domestic sales; and Goldcrest Films is handling international sales after acquiring rights out of the 2015 Toronto Film Festival.
