Saban Films announced today that they have acquired U.S. distribution rights to David Raymond’s directorial debut Nomis starring Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) and Academy Award® Winner Ben Kingsley (Gandhi).
Alexandra Daddario (Baywatch), Academy Award® Nominee Stanley Tucci (The Lovely Bones), Minka Kelly (“Friday Night Lights”) and Nathan Fillion (“Castle”) also star in the psychological thriller. Raymond penned the script, and also produced alongside Robert Ogden Barnum, Arise Pictures’ Chris Pettit and Buffalo Gals’ Jeff Beesley, and Rick Dugdale.
Nomis, which made its World Premiere as the Closing Night film at the Los Angeles Film Festival, follows Marshall (Cavill), a weathered Lieutenant, and his police force as they investigate a string of female abductions and murders linked to an online predator. As new leads emerge and the case unravels, Marshall teams with local vigilante (Kingsley) in pursuit of vengeance.
Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley commented, “This is a beautifully crafted tension-filled thriller with a cast that, undeniably, our audiences will love. Nomis is a fun and entertaining ride and we’re very excited to be onboard.”
Bill Bromiley and Jonathan Saba negotiated the deal for Saban Films, along with CAA on behalf of filmmakers. Fortitude International is handling international rights.
