Voltage Pictures has acquired worldwide rights to Renny Harlin’s new horror-thriller "Refuge" starring Jason Flemyng and Raza Ja

Jason Flemyng (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Raza Jaffrey (“Homeland”) and Sophie Simnett (Netflix’s “Daybreak”) are set to star in acclaimed blockbuster director Renny Harlin’s (Die Hard 2Cliffhanger) new horror-thriller Refuge, written by action sci-fi writer Ben Sztajnkrycer, it was announced today by Voltage Pictures’ President and COO Jonathan Deckter. Voltage Pictures has acquired worldwide rights and will introduce to buyers at the upcoming Marché du film June 21-25, 2021.

 

Produced by powerhouse executives Yariv Lerner (Hellboy, Rambo: Last Blood), Rob Van Norden (Olympus Has Fallen, Rambo: Last Blood), Revelations Entertainment Partner and Producer Gary Lucchesi (Underworld franchise, The Lincoln Lawyer), Michael McKay (Brahms: The Boy II), Revelations Entertainment’s CEO Lori McCreary (Invictus, CBS’ “Madam Secretary”), and Harlin, who have brought us some of the most successful films of recent years, Refuge is a Revelations Entertainment and B2Y Production. Voltage’s Nicolas Chartier and Dectker are executive producing.

 

Johanna Harlin (Class Reunion 3) and Aston McAuley (20th Century Fox’s Rocketman) have also been cast in the highly anticipated film, which is is currently shooting in Bulgaria.

 

Flemyng’s early credits include Guy Ritchie’s Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, Stephen Norrington’s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and David Fincher’s Oscar nominated The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.  More recently, Flemyng stars in Peter Cattaneo’s “Military Wives”, television series “Pennyworth” for Warner Bros, BBC mini-series “SS-GB” and Sky/Starz series “Save Me.”

 

Jaffrey had a major recurring role in Netflix’s “Lost In Space”  series and will next appear in the network’s “Sweet Girl’ opposite Jason Momoa. He previously appeared in Paramount Studios “The Rhythm Section” opposite Blake Lively and Jude Law; as well as Showtime’s Golden Globe-winning series “Homeland” opposite Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, and was a series regular on CBS’ “Code Black” and NBC’s “Enemy Within’.

 

Simnett most recently appeared in Twist opposite Academy Award-winner Michael Caine and Lena Heady. She also appeared in Netflix’s post-apocalyptic dramedy “Daybreak” opposite Matthew Broderick.

 

McCauley’s credits include the box-office phenomenon Rocketman opposite Taron Egerton and Jamie Bell, the Netflix limited series “Behind Her Eyes” opposite Eve Hewson, and Armando Iannucci’s  The Personal History of David Copperfield opposite Dev Patel, Hugh Laurie and Tilda Swinton.

 

In this horror-thriller, a U.S. military veteran — Sergeant Rick Pedroni — returns home changed and dangerous after a tour of duty in Afghanistan where he suffered an attack by a mysterious force. While officials dismiss his behavior as PTSD, and order trauma therapy, Rick's wife Kate discovers her husband has been possessed by a malevolent spirit.  

 

“I’m sure our partners the world over will be thrilled with the perfect recipe for success that has been put together for Refuge: great producers Gary, Lori and Yariv with an outstanding track record in the genre (and all spaces), combined with a cool script and the icon that is Renny Harlin,” said Deckter.

 

Flemyng is represented by Kate Buckley at 42. Jaffrey is repped by Principal Entertainment LA and ICM Partners. McCauley is repped by 42. Simnett is is repped by Circle of Confusion and Insight Management & Production.
