Saban Films has acquired U.S. rights to the Mel Gibson thriller On The Line, in which the Oscar winner portrays a radio host confronted by a hostile caller, Deadline reports.
In the film, the anonymous caller threatens to kill the host’s entire family while he is on air. To save loved ones, the radio host has to play a survival game over the course of one night and the only way to win is to find out the identity of the criminal.
It is film director-writer-producer Romuald Boulanger’s second feature following his 2020 debut Connectés.
On The Line also stars Kevin Dillon (Entourage), Enrique Arce (Terminator: Dark Fate), William Moseley (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe), and Nadia Farès (Luther). The film is currently in post-production, with Saban Films planning a November 2022 release.
