'The Blackening' Horror Comedy From Director Tim Story Acquired by Lionsgate

Lionsgate has picked up “One Ranger,” the action-thriller starring Thomas Jane and John Malkovich and will handle sales at AFM.

Written and directed by Jesse V. Johnson (“The White Elephant,” “Avengement”), the film stars Jane as a highly skilled Texas Ranger hired by British Intelligence to hunt down a terrorist who plans to mount a major attack in London. Malkovich’s role is being kept under wraps. Dean S. Jagger (“Game of Thrones,” “See”) and Dominique Tipper (“Headhunters,” “The Expanse”) also star.

Said Lauren Bixby, SVP of Co-productions and Acquisitions for Lionsgate: “One Ranger is non-stop action and it’s so much fun watching Thomas Jane being dropped into the center of London as a Texas Ranger, having to face the likes of John Malkovich and his MI6 team.”

“One Ranger” is produced by Corey Large and Bernie Gewissler. Thomas Jane and Courtney Lauren Penn are executive producers on behalf of Renegade Entertainment.

Jane most recently appeared in the Amazon FreeVee drama series “Troppo,” which he also executive produced through his Renegade Entertainment banner. Other notable credits include series “The Expanse” and “Hung,” as well as films “The Punisher,” “1922,” and “Boogie Nights.”

Veteran actor Malkovich will soon feature in Apple TV’s Christian Dior-Coco Chanel series “The New Look”; “Thelma” with Kathy Bates; Ruper Everett’s “Lost and Found in Paris”; and “A Winter’s Journey.”

Jane is repped by Paradigm, while Malkovich is repped by WME.
