Guillaume Canet's Cannes thriller (and English language debut following "Tell No One" and "Little White Lies") "Blood Ties" has landed with Lionsgate. The studio will release it through its sister company Roadside Attractions.

Directed by Canet from a screenplay written by Canet and James Gray (who has "The Immigrant" up for a Palme d'Or this year), the film is based on the screenplay “Les Liens du sang” by Jaques Maillot, Pierre Chosson, and Eric Veniard, and the novel "Deux Freres, un flic, un truand" by Michel and Bruno Papet. Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Marion Cotillard, Domenick Lombardozzi, Mila Kunis, Matthias Schoenaerts, Zoé Saldana, and James Caan all star.

Set in Brooklyn during the early 1970s, "Blood Ties" concerns two brothers, a cop and a convict forced to reconcile their differences.
