Kathy Bates and Ed Skrein Attached to Sci-Fi Thriller A PATRIOT



Brian O’Shea, The Exchange CEO, announced today that Golden Globe-nominated actress Eva Green (MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, CASINO ROYALE), Oscar-winning actress Kathy Bates (TITANIC, American Horror Story) and award-winning actor Ed Skrein(DEADPOOL, ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL) are attached to the sci-fi thriller A PATRIOT.

Currently in pre-production, A PATRIOT boasts an original screenplay penned by Award-winning filmmaker Dan Pringle (K-SHOP) and Toby Rushton (MONSTERS) with Pringle also attached to direct. The project is being produced by Adam Merrifield (K-SHOP) from White Lantern Film and John Giwa-Amu (THE MACHINE) from Red & Black Films with Angus Finney (THE MOTHER) executive producing.

The Exchange has worldwide sales rights for A PATRIOT and will be introducing the tile to buyers at the upcoming Cannes’18 market.

A PATRIOT takes place in a future authoritarian state that has walled itself away from a world ravaged by climate chaos and resource wars. The story follows the unquestioning Border Corp Captain Kate Jones (Green) as she fights to defend the purity of the population, until a chance discovery makes her doubt the authorities she has pledge her allegiance and life to protect.

“We are very excited to bring this commercial sci-fi thriller to market. With great talent attached to this powerful storyline, A PATRIOT will surely garner global theatrical distribution,” said O’Shea from The Exchange.

The Exchange 2018 Cannes lineup includes Aja Naomi King’s A GIRL FROM MOGADISHU, two Sundance’18 award winners: Ethan Hawke’s BLAZE and Jeremiah Zagar’s WE THE ANIMALS.
