Code Name Banshee – Screen Media picks up the action film starring Antonio Banderas, Jaime King, Tommy Flanagan and Catherine Davis

Screen Media has announced the acquisition of all North American rights to the action film Code Name Banshee. Directed by Jon Keeyes (The Survivalist, Rogue Hostage) and written by Matthew Rogers (The Survivalist), the film stars Academy Award nominee Antonio Banderas (Pain and Glory, Indiana Jones 5, The Mask of Zorro), Jaime King (Black Summer, Sin City, White Chicks), Tommy Flanagan (Westworld, Sons of Anarchy, There Are No Saints) and Catherine Davis (Run Hide Fight, S.W.A.T.).

Caleb (Antonio Banderas), a former government assassin in hiding, resurfaces when his protégé, the equally deadly killer known as Banshee (Jaime King), discovers a bounty has been placed on Caleb’s head, which the powerful mercenary, Anthony (Tommy Flanagan) is now seeking to collect. Caleb and Banshee must put the past behind them and join together one last time, along with Caleb’s daughter, Hailey (Catherine Davis) if they are to survive the secret CIA plot that threatens to destroy them.

“I’ve always been attracted to the fantasy of the cinema assassin and the worlds created within that mythos,” said director Jon Keeyes in a statement. “Working with Yale Entertainment and Screen Media to bring Code Name Banshee to life through Antonio Banderas and Jaime King is a dream and created an action-packed story that will have audiences riveted.”

“It’s rare that a film manages to be action-packed and compelling right from the opening shot until its last frame,” said Screen Media in a statement. “The relationship between Antonio Banderas’ and Jaime King’s characters is dynamic, engaging, and fun – powerhouse performances across the board.”

The deal was negotiated by Seth Needle, executive vice president of Global Acquisitions and Co-Productions, on behalf of Screen Media with Jordan Yale Levine and Jordan Beckerman on behalf of the production.

The film is produced by Jordan Beckerman, Jon Keeyes, Jordan Yale Levine, Shaun Sanghani and executive produced by Stephen Braun, Lee Broda, Kurt Ebner, David Gendron, Barry Habib, Matthew Helderma, Ali Jazayeri, Roman Kopelevich, Jason Kringstein, Gigi Lacks, Scott Levenson, Michael Rothstein, Anne Ruden, Gregory Ruden, Marcie Sinaiko, Luke Taylor, Jeffery Tussi, Roman Viaris, John Wollman, Seth Needle, Conor McAdam and David Nagelberg. Code Name Banshee is the second collaboration between Keeyes, Rogers, Levine and Beckerman, following their film The Survivalist. Screen Media is planning a day-and-date theatrical and on-demand release in July and Red Sea Media is handling foreign sales.

Screen Media recently acquired worldwide rights to the Bella Thorne-led thriller Saint Clare, the psychological thriller Cordelia starring Antonia Campbell-Hughes and Johnny Flynn, The Good Neighbor starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, the psychological horror film Monstrous starring Christina Ricci, the thriller The Immaculate Room starring Emile Hirsch and Kate Bosworth and Kevin Lewis’ follow up to Willy’s Wonderland, The Accursed starring Mena Suvari.
