Saban Films has acquired US and Canadian rights to Jaume Balagueró’s The Vault [previously Way Down] starring Famke Janssen (X-Men franchise), Sam Riley (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Maleficent), Golden Globe® Nominee Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, “Bates Motel”), Astrid Bergès-Frisbeyfor (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) and Liam Cunningham (“Game of Thrones”). Rowan Athale, Michel Gaztambide, Borja Glez. Santaolalla, Andrés M. Koppel and Rafa Martínez penned the action thriller, with Álvaro Augustin, Ghislain Barrois, Freddie Highmore, Eneko Lizarraga and Francisco Sánchez producing. Saban Films will release The Vault in theaters, on demand and digitally January 22nd, 2021.
The Vault follows Thom (Highmore), a genius engineering graduate whose interest is piqued by the Bank of Spain. It’s safe, built over 100 years ago, has no blueprints, and its security system includes an underground river that floods the safe room if breached. After learning that a legendary treasure will be deposited in the bank’s safe, Thom masterminds a meticulous plan along with charismatic art dealer Walter (Cunningham) to break into it.
Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley said, “The Vault is an impressive and well-crafted film that will keep audiences in suspense through every step of the plan.”
Jonathan Saba negotiated the deal for Saban Films along with CAA Media Finance on behalf of filmmakers and TF1 STUDIO.
