Lionsgate Boards Juliette Binoche, Frank Grillo & Morgan Freeman Thriller ‘Paradise Highway’
Exclusive: Lionsgate has boarded Paradise Highway, a Silver Reel and Zdf thriller starring Oscar winners Juliette Binoche and Morgan Freeman, and Captain America actor Frank Grillo.

Lionsgate has taken North America distribution rights and will handle international sales. Zdf boards as co-producer and German distributor. Both deals were secured by Silver Reel’s Claudia Bluemhuber.

In Paradise Highway, written and directed by Anna Gutto, Sally (Binoche), a truck driver, has been forced to smuggle illicit cargo to save her brother Dennis (Grillo) from a deadly prison gang. With FBI operative Gerick (Freeman) hot on her trail, Sally’s motivations and conscience are challenged when the final package turns out to be a teenage girl (Hala Finley).

Cameron Monaghan, Veronica Ferres, Christiane Seidel and Walker Babington also star in the feature.

Gutto (Netflix’s Home for Christmas) wrote her screenplay off of years of research and immersion in the trucking community.
