Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Connor Paolo to star alongside Aaron Eckhart in newaction-thriller “AMBUSH”

 

 

HIGHLAND FILM GROUP HANDLING INTERNATIONAL SALES AT AFM

 

It was announced today that Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The 12th Man, History Channel’s “Vikings,” Showtime’s “The Tudors”) and Connor Paolo (Stake Land, Friend Request, ABC’s “Revenge”) will co-star in the upcoming action thriller Ambush starring Golden Globe® nominee Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight, Line of Duty) and co-starring Jason Genao (Logan, Netflix´s The Get Down). The action-thriller is written and directed by Mark Earl Burman (Dog Eat Dog), co-written by Michael McClung (American Martyr).

 

Highland Film Group is handling international sales. Saban Films is set to release the film in North America.

 

Ambush is based on the exhilarating true story of a deadly high-stakes subterranean mission into enemy controlled territory. The nail-biting film follows a group of young elite commandos, led by Captain Drummond (Aaron Eckhart), tasked with collecting highly classified information that can change the fate of the war. On the edge of the jungle, the team is attacked by the overwhelming invisible force of the enemy army. Drummond’s young team must overcome their apprehension in order to pursue the force into the complex labyrinth of Cu Chi tunnels, with enemy soldiers and traps at every turn.

“Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Connor Paolo are just wonderful actors and a great compliment to Aaron and Jason for this edge of your seat actioner. Filming starts at the end of the month and I can’t tell you how happy I am that the stars have aligned, and we can start shooting. It’s a happy day,” Highland Film Group CEO Arianne Fraser stated. “Ambush is the ideal package for the worldwide marketplace, and we look forward to working with Mark Earl Burman and the rest of the crew,” continued Highland Film Group COO Delphine Perrier.

 

The film is produced under the Dark Mark Productions banner and by Burman, alongside executive producers Anthony Standberry, David Unger of Artist International Group, Arianne Fraser and Delphine Perrier of Highland Film Group, Scott Powell, Randy Burman, Wayne Willbur, and Harsimranjit "Harry" Ahluwalia.

 

Jonathan Rhys Meyers is represented by Artist International Group and Connor Paolo is represented by Paradigm Talent Agency.
