Titles Include: Isaac Florentine’s "Acts of Vengeance," Paul Solet’s "Unchained," and Hector Hernandez Vicens "Day of the Dead"

Saban Films has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to a slate of films from Avi Lerner’s Millennium Media.

The trio of titles includes Isaac Florentine’s "Acts of Vengeance" starring Antonio Banderas, Karl Urban, Robert Forster and Paz Vega; Paul Solet’s "Bullet Head" (formerly "Unchained") also starring Banderas, John Malkovich and Adrien Brody; and "Day of the Dead" a remake of George Romero’s "Day of the Dead" directed by Hèctor Hernández Vicens and starring Sophie Skelton.

The three action-thrillers will be released in Q4.
“Avi Lerner has long become synonymous with widely appealing action thrillers with marquee names like Antonio Banderas, John Malkovich and Adrien Brody and films with the pedigree of Day of the Dead,” Saban Films President Bill Bromiley said. “This is perfectly in line with our acquisition strategy.  Our audiences are starving for these types of films, and with this newly minted relationship we are thrilled to have a steady pipeline of these movies we can deliver to our audiences across the country.”
Written by Matt Venne, Acts of Vengeance follows a fast-talking lawyer who transforms his body and takes a vow of silent, not to be broken until he finds out who killed his wife and daughter and has his revenge.

Written by Solet, Bullet Head is a Reservoir Dogs-style thriller centering on a group of career criminals who trap themselves in a warehouse with the law closing in, and run into the attack dog named DeNiro.

The tale is told in a series of intertwining narratives that explore the love, fear and conditioning and all the wrong turns that have put them in the dog house, fighting for their lives.

Written by Mark Tonderai and Lars Jacobson, "Day of the Dead" follows a small group of military personnel and survivalists who dwell in an underground bunker as they seek to find a cure in a world overrun by zombies.

Ness Saban and Bill Bromiley negotiated the deal on behalf of Saban Films with Dave Sobieraj from Millennium.

Saban Films continues to be an active buyer following the acquisition of Taran Killam’s "Killing Gunther" and the Ethan Hawke Action/Thriller "24 Hours to Live," both of which will be released later this year.

Recent titles also include Ric Roman Waugh’s "Shot Caller" starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Lake Bell, Simon West’s "Gun Shy" starring Antonio Banderas and Olga Kurylenko and John Travolta’s "Speed Kills."

Upcoming titles for release include: Sean Penn’s "The Last Face" starring Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem; John Stockwell’s "Armed Response" starring Wesley Snipes and Anne Heche; Alexandros Avranas’ "True Crime" starring Jim Carrey; and FilmNation’s sci-fi film "Kill Switch" starring Dan Stevens and Bérénice Marlohe.
