EXCLUSIVE: Adam Beach (Apple’s upcoming Swan Song, Suicide Squad) and Camille Sullivan (Big Sky, Hunter Hunter) will topline Exile, a thriller directed by Jason James (Entanglement, That Burning Feeling), which is heading into production in Canada next month.
The film penned by Mike Beaton centers on Ted Evans, who receives a threat from the man whose family he killed in a DUI, just prior to his release from prison. Believing that the danger is real, Ted exiles himself to a reclusive life to protect his family. However, Ted’s wife, Sara, knows the threat is merely a manifestation of her husband’s profound guilt. Determined to rebuild their family, she tracks Ted down to confront him with hard evidence that the threat is imagined. Sara has no idea just how unhinged Ted has become… or how real the threat may be after all.
James is producing with Amber Ripley and Sammie Astaneh, with Tai Duncan and Mark Williams of Zero Gravity Entertainment (Ozark, The Accountant, Honest Thief) exec producing. The production companies involved are Service Street Pictures, Goodbye Productions and Resonance Films.
Beach is represented by Red Management in British Columbia and Kleinberg Lange Cuddy & Carlo. Sullivan is repped by Red Management and The Artist Representation Company in Ontario, Canada.
