Open Road Rescues Star-Studded Relativity Project ‘Collide’

Open Road Rescues Star-Studded Relativity Project 'Collide'

Open Road Films will distribute “Collide,” from director Eran Creevy, in the U.S.—saving the former Relativity Media project, originally scheduled for theatrical release later this month, from the trash heap. Relativity, Ryan Kavanaugh’s 11-year-old indie studio, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in July after racking up $320 million in debt and being served with a rash of lawsuits on defaulted loans.

“Collide,” once titled “Autobahn,” stars Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones as an American couple traveling in Germany, where they become the objects of a cat-and-mouse game involving feuding criminals Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley. The film, financed by IM Global
and China’s
DMG Entertainment, with additional financing by Sycamore Pictures, is now scheduled to open in theaters Apr. 1, 2016. The soundtrack, on Republic Records, features an upcoming single from Tiësto and
the Chainsmokers.
