Icon Prods. has sold stateside distribution rights to the R-rated crime thriller “Butterfly on a Wheel” to Lionsgate Releasing says The Hollywood Reporter.
Directed by Mike Barker (“A Good Woman”), “Wheel” stars Pierce Brosnan as a mysterious stranger who arrives in Chicago and terrorizes a happy-seeming married couple (Maria Bello, Gerard Butler) after kidnapping their daughter.
Soon it becomes clear that his outrageous demands are not in pursuit of a big cash payment. Written by William Morrissey, “Wheel” was filmed in Vancouver and Chicago.
