Signature secures strong haul in Cannes

LONDON, Monday, June 1st, 2015: Signature Entertainment has enjoyed an effective trip to Cannes this year, securing a further raft of strong titles and adding to an ever-growing 2015 slate:


Nicholas Cage (Dying Of The Light, Kick-Ass) teams up again with the legendary Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, The Last Temptation Of Christ) for this taut crime thriller from Arclight. Three men recently released from prison and with California’s punishing three strikes law looming over them, go on to commit the ‘perfect’ crime but find that their own circumstances, the system and the long arm of the law are never far from getting the better of them.


The Highland Film Group presents Hailee Steinfield (Pitch Perfect 2, Ender’s Game) as Megan Walsh, a teenage special ops agent who yearns for a normal adolescence. After faking her own death, she assumes the role of an exchange student and quickly learns that surviving the treacherous waters of a typical American high school can be even more difficult than international espionage. Samuel L Jackson (The Kingsman: Secret Service, Avengers: Age Of Ultron), Jessica Alba (Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Into The Blue) and Sophie Turner (Game Of Thrones, X-Men: Apocalypse) support.


Sarah Jessica Parker returns to the rom-com in AmbiÕs All Roads Lead To Rome. Maggie, an uptight American, is forced to reunite with Luca, her former lover, as they embark on a road trip across Italy in an attempt to track down her rebellious teenage daughter. In the meantime, LucaÕs mother has her own mission in mind and the seductive power of the Italian scenery also begins to work its own individual kind of magic…


Highland Film Group’s Savva is an original animated adventure about a 10-year old boy living in a small village in a forest that was once protected by a pack of regal white wolves. With the wolves now gone, the village is at constant risk of attack from ruthless hyenas and only a powerful magician can help. Can Savva outwit the forces of evil and reclaim his village? With Sharon Stone (Alpha Dog, Casino), Whoopi Goldberg (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Toy Story 3) and Joe Pesci (Home Alone, The Good Shepherd) providing their vocal talents, this is a family adventure for the ages.


Lakeshore presents the ultimate battle between good and evil – God versus Satan. Angela Holmes is an ordinary 27-year old until she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone who comes into contact with her. Possession is suspected, but when the Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagined. It’s up to Father Lozano (Michael Pena-Fury, American Hustle) to wage a war not just for Angela’s soul, but for the world as we know it. With Dougray Scott (Taken 3, Mission: Impossible 2) and Djimon Hounsou (Guardians Of The Galaxy, Constantine).


Marc Goldberg, Managing Director for Signature Entertainment said: “Cannes was a hugely successful and busy market for Signature. We are excited to be working with some new partners and continuing our excellent relationships with others; I am looking forward to releasing such commercial, quality content. There will be another five or six titles that we will look to announce in the coming weeks.”
