Saban Films has acquired North American rights to John Travolta’s action-thriller, “I Am Wrath,” directed by Chuck Russell, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The deal was made at the Cannes Market at this year’s festival.
The film’s synopsis reads: “[“I Am Wrath”] tells the story of unemployed engineer Stanley Hill (Travolta), who witnesses the murder of his wife Vivian (De Mornay), who was attacked by thugs in a parking garage. Wracked with guilt, Stanley is haunted by the image of Vivian dying in his arms. When Detective Gibson (Trammell) is unable to bring the killers to justice, Stanley turns to his old friend Dennis (Meloni) and decides to take matters into his own hands.”
“Travolta is perfect in this film,” said Richard Rionda Del Castro, from Hannibal Classis, which made the deal with Saban. “He presents as a family man that you would not want to cross.”
