Brian O'Shea (CEO of The Exchange) announced today (April 27) that Golden Globe-nominated actress Eva Green, Oscar-winning actress Kathy Bates, and award-winning actor Ed Skrein are attached to the new sci-fi thriller "A Patriot."

"A Patriot" is currently in pre-production. It boasts an original screenplay penned by Award-winning filmmaker Dan Pringle and Toby Rushton with Pringle also attached to direct.

The producers of the project are Adam Merrifield from White Lantern Film and John Giwa-Amu from Red & Black Films. Angus Finney is the executive producer.

"A Patriot"  takes place in a future authoritarian state that has walled itself away from a world ravaged by climate chaos and resource wars. The story follows the unquestioning Border Corp Captain Kate Jones (Green) as she fights to defend the purity of the population until a chance discovery makes her doubt the authorities she has pledged her allegiance and life to protect.

O'Shea said this about the film:
We are very excited to bring this commercial sci-fi thriller to market. With great talent attached to this powerful storyline, A PATRIOT will surely garner global theatrical distribution.
The Exchange has worldwide sales rights to the film and will be introducing "A Patriot" to buyers at the upcoming Cannes'18 market.  The Exchange's 2018 Cannes lineup includes Aja Naomi King’s "A Girl from Mogadishu"  two Sundance’18 award winners: Ethan Hawke’s "Blaze" and Jeremiah Zagar’s "We the Animals."
