First Look Takes Gamble on ‘Transsiberian’

First Look Studios has acquired Filmax Group’s lackluster Transsiberian (review), starring Woody Harrelson, Emily Mortimer and Ben Kingsley, and plans a late summer domestic release. The film also stars Kate Mara and Eduardo Noriega. It’s directed by Brad Anderson (Session 9, The Machinist), who co-scripted with Will Conroy. The Sundance pic follows an American couple, played by Harrelson and Mortimer, in a chase of deception and murder on the Siberian train journey from China to Moscow.
