Bleecker Street has acquired the US rights to director Brad Anderson’s upcoming period spy thriller HIGH WIRE ACT starring Jon Hamm, Rosamund Pike, and Dean Norris.

Written by Tony Gilroy, the film also stars Mark Pellegrino, Larry Pine, Shea Whigham, Alon Moni Aboutboul, Idir Chender and Jonny Coyne.

Andrew Karpen, Bleecker Street CEO said:

“Brad’s film is the kind of adult thriller a smarthouse audience craves. It’s tense, personal and well-crafted right through its final heart-pounding moments.”

Shivani Rawat of ShivHans Pictures, who produces:

“It is wonderful to be working with Andrew and his team again. Bleecker Street is the perfect house for this film and we are so thrilled to continue our relationship with them.”

Mike Weber of Radar Pictures, Gilroy and Rawat and Monica Levinson of ShivHans Pictures produce. Ted Field and Steven Saeta executive produce.
