NEW DELHI: The crime thriller starring Nicolas Cage, The Trust, is to be distributed in North America by Saban Capital Group, as per a deal finalised at the American Film Market.



SCG chairman and CEO Haim Saban said the film is co-written by Ben Brewer and Adam Hirsch and will be directed by Ben and Alex Brewer. The Trust is currently in pre-production with lensing in Las Vegas, NV.



The Trust centers on two crooked cops who discover a hidden safe, the contents of which will lead them down a deadly road of corruption.  With each shocking twist, and every deadly turn, the pair are left to fight for their lives, with no one left to trust.



“The script for The Trust was incredibly captivating and tells such a riveting story,” said Saban president Bill Bromiley. “Audiences everywhere will love Nicolas Cage in this role and it’s a great addition to the Saban Films portfolio.”



Bromiley and Ness Saban negotiated on behalf of Saban Films and Highland Film Group (HFG) on behalf of the producers. Molly Hassell and Braxton Pope are producing. The Trust is a Hassell Free Production in association with Electric Shadow Fund who is providing finance. Mike Nilon will be the executive producer along with HFG’s Arianne Fraser and Delphine Perrier. Highland Film Group is handling the worldwide sales for the film.



Saban Films’ first acquisition, The Homesman, starring Academy Award winners Tommy Lee Jones and Hilary Swank was screened at the upcoming Festival which is part of AFM. The film will be released stateside with Roadside Attractions on 14 November.



Saban Films recently acquired the US rights to John Travolta’s The Forger, the action thriller Tracers starring Taylor Lautner and Marie Avgeropoulos from Temple Hill Entertainment and American Heist starring Hayden Christensen, Academy Award Winner Adrien Brody, Jordana Brewster, Tory Kittles and Aliaune “AKON” Thiam.



Saban Films, an affiliate of Saban Capital Group is a film acquisition and distribution company which acquires high-quality, feature films to distribute in North America. Based in Los Angeles, Saban Films was established by Haim Saban, SCG chairman and chief executive officer, and is led by Bill Bromiley who serves as president, Shanan Becker, chief financial officer and Ness Saban, director of business development.
