Exclusive to Deadline Hollywood:
Open Road Lands U.S. Rights To Gerard Butler Action Pic ‘Kandahar’ In Eight-Figure Deal
Excerpt from article:
“Open Road Films has acquired U.S. rights to Gerard Butler action thriller Kandahar in a splashy eight-figure deal (low teens, we understand).
The G-BASE, Thunder Road, Capstone Studios and MBC Studios feature reunites Butler and director Ric Roman Waugh (Angel Has Fallen, Greenland) in the story of Tom Harris (Butler), an undercover CIA operative, stuck deep in hostile territory in Afghanistan. After his mission is exposed, he must fight his way out, alongside his Afghan translator, to an extraction point in Kandahar, all whilst avoiding elite enemy forces and foreign spies tasked with hunting them down.
Pic is now being lined up for for a wide domestic theatrical release in 2023.”
