All U.S. rights of Vaughn Stein’s Thriller Terminal has been acquired by RLJE Films, Variety has learned. The thriller stars Oscar-nominee Margot Robbie, Mike Myers (Austin Powers), Max Irons (Red Riding Hood), and Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle).
After receiving an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Tonya Harding in I, Tonya, the deal with the Highland Film was announced. Not only will Robbie star in Terminal, but she will also serve as producer for the movie (she also produced I, Tonya).
Terminal follows two assassins carrying out a sinister mission, a teacher battling a fatal illness, an enigmatic janitor, and a curious waitress leading a dangerous double life. Murderous consequences unravel in the dead of night as their lives intertwine at the hands of a mysterious criminal mastermind.
