Piling up titles for upcoming releases under its banner, Lionsgate Films has successfully secured the U.S. distribution rights to "Baker Street", a thriller feature of Arclight Films production toplined by Jason Statham.
Currently filming in the U.K. with principal photography set to conclude next month, the picture is inspired by a real-life 1971 London bank robbery in which no arrests ever made nor money ever recovered. For its premise, however, the flick also involves murder, corruption, and a sex scandal with links to the royal family.
Accompanied Statham in the cast are Saffron Burrows, Stephen Campbell Moore, and Daniel Mays among others. Roger Donaldson is directing from script written by duo Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais with Steve Chasman and Charles Roven producing.
