Henry Cavill-Led Psychological Thriller ‘Nomis’ Picked Up by Saban Films

Film follows a weathered Lieutenant investigating a string of female abductions and murders linked to an online predator

Saban Films announced on Wednesday that it has acquired U.S. distribution rights to “Nomis,” a psychological thriller starring Henry Cavill and Oscar winner Ben Kingsley.

The film, written and directed by first-time feature film director David Raymond, follows Marshall (Cavill), a weathered police lieutenant who’s investigating a string of female abductions and murders linked to an online predator. As new leads emerge and the case unravels, Marshall teams with local vigilante (Kingsley) in pursuit of vengeance.

“Nomis” had its world premiere at the closing night of the Los Angeles Film Festival.

Along with Cavill and Kingsley, “Nomis” also stars Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci, Alexandra Daddario, Minka Kelly and Nathan Fillion.

Raymond also produced alongside Robert Ogden Barnum, Arise Pictures’ Chris Pettit and Buffalo Gals’ Jeff Beesley, and Rick Dugdale.

Bromiley and Jonathan Saba negotiated the deal for Saban Films, along with CAA on behalf of filmmakers.  Fortitude International is handling international rights.

“This is a beautifully crafted tension-filled thriller with a cast that, undeniably, our audiences will love,” said Saban Films president Bill Bromiley in a statement. “‘Nomis’ is a fun and entertaining ride and we’re very excited to be on board.”

Saban Films, which has released more than 40 films since launching in 2014, recently acquired “The Haunting of Sharon Tate” starring Hilary Duff during the American Film Market, also picking up Derrick Borte’s “American Dreamer” starring Jim Gaffigan.

The studio’s most recent release, in partnership with Roadside Attractions, was Craig William Macneill’s racy drama “Lizzie,” starring Chloë Sevigny and Kristen Stewart.
