Wander – The Aaron Eckhart and Tommy Lee Jones conspiracy thriller has been picked up by Saban Films

Saban Films announced that they have acquired North American rights to Wander starring Golden Globe® nominee Aaron Eckhart (Midway, Olympus Has Fallen), Katheryn Winnick (“Vikings,” Love & Other Drugs), Heather Graham (Netflix’s Desperados, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me) and Academy Award® winner Tommy Lee Jones (No Country for Old Men, Lincoln). April Mullen (Below Her Mouth) directed the conspiracy thriller from a script by Tim Doiron (88).

Arthur Bretnik (Aaron Eckhart) is a mentally unstable conspiracy theorist and private eye with a traumatic past. After being hired to investigate a possible murder cover up in the small town of Wander, Arthur is plunged into a world of lies and deceit, as he quickly suspects the murder may be part of the same ‘conspiracy cover up’ that caused the death of his daughter. Increasingly paranoid, Arthur’s sanity is tested as he attempts to filter fact from fiction and solve the case, all the while questioning if he is a pawn in a much bigger game.

Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley said, “The whole cast brings heart and soul to this gripping thriller. It is a fun ride seeing Aaron Eckhart and Tommy Lee Jones in these respective roles; we’re honored to be working with April Mullen on this achievement.”

Director April Mullen added, “I’m thrilled to be working with Saban on releasing Wander to the masses. The film honors all the silent warriors who persevere and fight for the light through the darkest of circumstances.”

Bill Bromiley negotiated the deal for Saban Films with Steve Break along with VMI Worldwide’s J.D. Beaufils. Executive Producers are VMI Worldwide’s J.D. Beaufils, Verdi Productions’ Michelle Verdi and Chad A. Verdi Jr., Don Kee Productions’ Michael S. Smith and Franchesca Lantz, Tamer Abaza, Jeffrey Bohn, Angie Pack, Charles Saikaley, Siren Studios’ Craig Chapman, Roger Dorman, Circle 4 Entertainment’s Adam Falkoff, Phoenicia Pictures’ Ameer Fawaz and Christelle Conan from Ingenious Media whom provided funding.

April Mullen (p.g.a.) and Tim Doiron (p.g.a) also produced with VMI Worldwide’s Andre Relis (p.g.a), Verdi Productions’ Chad A. Verdi, Don Kee Productions’ Jason Allison, Aloe Entertainment’s Mary Aloe, Falconer Picture’s Douglas Falconer and James Van Der Woerd (p.g.a.).

Saban Films continues to grow its presence in the industry, remaining active in the acquisition, production and distribution space and recently announced that it is entering the UK market via a partnership with Altitude Media Group. The company’s successes have run the gamut from critically acclaimed theatrical films such as The Homesman starring Hilary Swank, to two of the biggest Fathom events with horror icon and heavy metal mastermind Rob Zombie’s 3 From Hell last year and Kevin Smith’s Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, the sequel to the 2001 comedy Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back which the company partnered on after coming onboard at script stage.
