Saban Films announced today that they have acquired North American rights to Seth Savoy’s directorial debut Echo Boomers starring Patrick Schwarzenegger (Midnight Sun, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse), Alex Pettyfer (Lee Daniels’ The Butler, I Am Number Four), Oliver Cooper (Project X, “Californication”), Academy Award nominee Lesley Ann Warren (Jobs, Victor Victoria) and Academy Award® nominee Michael Shannon (The Shape of Water, Knives Out). The crime-drama was written by Savoy, Kevin Bernhardt (S.M.A.R.T. Chase) and Jason Miller in his writing debut. Miller is also producing alongside Speakeasy’s James Langer, Mike Ware, Matthew G. Zamias, Lucas Jarach, Kelly Mi Li, Jeff G. Waxman and Wetzel Entertainment Group’s Byron Wetzel and Sean Kaplan.
Echo Boomers follows a group of disillusioned twenty-somethings, who use Chicago as their playground by breaking into the homes of its richest citizens, stealing from the rich and giving to themselves.
Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley said, “We are thrilled to be working with Seth Savoy in his directorial debut. This is a wild tale brought to life by an all-star cast at their best. The film will keep audiences on their toes.”
