CBS Films Picks Up ‘Comancheria’ Starring Chris Pine

CBS Films announced today that it has acquired U.S. rights to the action heist thriller COMANCHERIA. David Mackenzie (“Starred Up”) is set to direct the film from a screenplay by Taylor Sheridan (“Sicario”). Sidney Kimmel, Peter Berg (Film 44) and Julie Yorn (LBI) will produce the film with Carla Hacken and Gigi Pritzker serving as executive producers.

In COMANCHERIA, two brothers, Toby (Chris Pine) and Tanner (Ben Foster), go on a calculated bank robbery spree that puts them on a collision course with a West Texas Ranger (Academy Award© winner Jeff Bridges) determined to take them down.

Sidney Kimmel Entertainment developed the project with Film 44. Odd Lot recently joined SKE on the film and will co-produce and co-finance.

Principal photography begins May 26 in New Mexico. Sierra Affinity will be selling international rights at the Cannes Film Festival.
