Levonís Trade (D: Ayer, W: Stallone) S: Statham

EXCLUSIVE: In a lucrative pact, Amazon MGM Studios has landed U.S. theatrical rights to Levonís Trade, with Prime Video taking streaming rights in a slew of major international territories, we can reveal.

As we told you last year, the film helmed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad) will star Jason Statham (Fast & Furious franchise) and hail from producers Black Bear and BlockFilm. The screenplay was adapted by Sylvester Stallone (Creed), with revisions by Ayer, and is based on prolific comic author Chuck Dixonís first novel in the ďLevonĒ series.

Amazon MGM has signed a deal for a wide theatrical release in the U.S. Outside of the Prime Video international territories (where the film may conceivably go online only), Black Bear has sold the film independently to theatrical distributors in multiple overseas markets.

The movie will chart how Levon Cade (Statham) left his ďprofessionĒ behind him to go Ďstraightí and work in construction. He wants to live a simple life and be a good father to his daughter. But when his bossís teenage daughter Jenny vanishes, heís called upon to re-employ the skills that made him a legendary figure in the shadowy world of black ops. His hunt for the missing college student takes him deep into the heart of a sinister criminal conspiracy creating a chain reaction that will threaten his new way of life.

The team is on course for to start filming in London this spring.

This is the second project weíve revealed in consecutive days that Amazon MGM is expected to give a wide theatrical platform (after Chris Pratt movie Mercy), following the bombshell column on Deadline from filmmaker Doug Liman in which he criticized the studio for not releasing Road House theatrically.

David Ayer and Chris Long will produce Levonís Trade for Cedar Park Entertainment, with Statham for Punch Palace Productions (The Beekeeper), Stallone for Balboa Productions, John Friedberg (Ferrari, The Covenant) for Black Bear, and Bill Block (David Gordon Greenís Halloween franchise) for BlockFilm.

Statham, Ayer, Chris Long, and Bill Block recently teamed with Amazon MGM Studios on the action-thriller The Beekeeper. The film has brought in more than $78M at the worldwide box office.

Jason Statham is represented by Patrick Knapp at GGSSC. David Ayer is represented by WME and attorney David Weber. Sylvester Stallone is represented by UTA and attorney Robert Lange.
