The Silencing Acquired by Saban Films

Saban Films announced this week that they have acquired Robin Pront’s (The Ardennes) serial killer thriller, The Silencing, for distribution in the U.S.

The film was originally set to have its world premiere at this year's SXSW Film Festival, but as we all know, the festival was canceled due to the coronavirus.

The Silencing follows a reformed hunter living in isolation on a wildlife sanctuary who becomes involved in a deadly game of cat and mouse when he and the local Sheriff set out to track a vicious killer who may have kidnapped his daughter years ago.

The film stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau ("Game of Thrones", Oblivion), Annabelle Wallis (The Mummy, "Peaky Blinders") and Hero Fiennes Tiffin (After, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince).

The crime-thriller was penned by Micah Ranum as his debut feature film with Anova Pictures’ Cybill Lui Eppich (Pay the Ghost, After the Dark) producing. Saban Films, which partnered with XYZ Films on the project since script stage, executive produced along with XYZ Films’ Aram Tertzakian and Maxime Cottray.
