Saban Films recently acquired the North American rights to Wander, a conspiracy thriller film starring Aaron Eckhart alongside Tommy Lee Jones and Heather Graham. “The whole cast brings heart and soul to this gripping thriller,” Saban’s Bill Bromley said. “It is a fun ride seeing Aaron Eckhart and Tommy Lee Jones in these respective roles; we’re honored to be working with April Mullen on this achievement.”
The film follows Eckhart as a mentally unstable private investigator who becomes convinced that a suspicious death he’s investigating is linked to the same ‘conspiracy cover up’ that caused the death of his daughter. “I’m thrilled to be working with Saban on releasing Wander to the masses,” Director April Mullen said. “The film honors all the silent warriors who persevere and fight for the light through the darkest of circumstances.”
Mullen previously worked with Wander writer Tim Doiron on smaller films like 88, Rock Paper Scissors: The Way of the Tosser and GravyTrain. The two business partners co-founded the production company Wango Films in 2005.
Jones and Eckhart previously worked together on the 2003 Western The Missing, directed by Ron Howard. Wander has completed production and is planned for release in North America sometime in 2021.
