This film features a legendary cast led by Robert De Niro, John Malkovich, Willa Fitzgerald, Jack Huston and musician Quavo.
The film is directed by Randall Emmett. Emmett holds extensive experience in the Hollywood film industry having produced over 120 films throughout his career. Emmett is best known as the producer of “2 Guns” starring Denzel Washington, “Silence” starring Andrew Garfield, “Lone Survivor” starring Mark Wahlberg and “The Irishman” starring Robert De Niro.

On landing De Niro for the starring role, Emmett stated, “I couldn’t be more excited to work with Bob again after many collaborations, including The Irishman. I’m so grateful that he is supporting me as a filmmaker.”

Paramount will handle the rights and distribution of Blu-ray, DVD, VOD, and digital rights. Highland has also inked international pre-sales in countries all over the world. “The market response to the film has been remarkable! Randall has succeeded in directing a very commercial film with a strong artistic vision that our buyers have fully embraced. Our trusted international partners had their eyes on the film for some time now, so being able to wrap principal photography with such a stellar cast amid the pandemic is something we are very proud of,” stated CEO Arianne Fraser.
