Open Road announced that they have secured U.S. distribution rights to Pierre Morel's "The Gunman", starring Sean Penn. Earlier today Open Road CEO Tom Ortenberg told me, "The Gunman" is a terrific film that we are thrilled to be associated with". He added, "Pierre Morel directing an amazing cast including Sean Penn, Javier Bardem, Idris Elba and Ray Winstone is a marketing dream". The high voltage actioner, which has Penn as a PTSD-afflicted ex-special forces solider on the run, will be released in 2015.
