Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate have bought Nicholas Jarecki’s “Arbitrage.” This thriller set in the high finance world stars Gere as billionaire hedge fund tycoon Robert Miller who on the eve of his sixtieth birthday finds himself desperately trying to sell his trading empire before the extent of his fraud is discovered. The film has been gaining buzz for a strong performance by Gere. The film marks the narrative feature debut for director Jarecki, who directed the documentary "The Outsider" in 2005, which followed the making of James Toback’s "When Will I Be Loved." “Arbitrage” also stars Susan Sarandon, Tim Roth and Brit Marling. WME negotiated the deal. Roadside and Lionsgate continue to grow their partnership, which in the past has included teaming up on the release of Oscar-nominated “Margin Call.” The companies will release "Friend With Kids" in March.
