U.S. rights to Stephen Milburn Anderson's "CA$H" have been acquired by Roadside Attractions. The Los Angeles-based distributor will open the film theatrically on March 26th and Lionsgate will release the film on DVD and other US ancillary markets through Roadside's output deal.

The film was produced and financed by Naveen Chathappuram, of Immortal Thoughts, with Prema Thekkek serving as Executive Producer. Media 8 Entertainment is handling international sales.

Milburn's ("South Central") film is described as a "character-driven action thriller that explores the all-encompassing power of money and the extreme lengths desperate people will go to get it and keep it." With a stroke of good luck, a struggling couple find a suitcase full of money, but it turns lethal for Sam Phelan (Chris Hemsworth) and his wife Leslie (Victoria Profeta). The money fulfills their fantasies, but also brings strange and sinister Pyke Kubic (Sean Bean) to their doorstep. Pyke leads Sam and Leslie on a frenetic and violent adventure through the streets of Chicago and forces them to play by his rules. But they play the game better than anyone expected.

"'CA$H' is a great ride, and is timely as well," said Roadside Attractions Co-President Howard Cohen in a statement. "It's about an ordinary couple, faced with foreclosure on their house, who kind of go crazy trying to keep a bunch of money that could change their lives."
