Briarcliff Entertainment, in partnership with Open Road Films, has acquired U.S. distribution rights to Memory, an action vehicle that stars Liam Neeson and is directed by Martin Campbell. Pic is financed by Teddy Schwarzman’s Black Bear Pictures. This marks the fourth pic for Neeson and Briarcliff/Open Road, following Honest Thief, The Marksman and the upcoming Blacklight. They’ve set a wide U.S. theatrical release on April 29, 2022, per Briarcliff and Open Road’s Tom Ortenberg and Black Bear’s Teddy Schwarzman and Michael Heimler.
The EFM dominoes are starting to fall. We understand that Liam Neeson action pic Memory has pre-sold to German indie-major Telepool in a low-mid seven figure deal here at the EFM. STX is handling international.
