Deadline is exclusively reporting that Signature Entertainment have acquired the UK and Ireland rights for thriller The Ice Road, starring Liam Neeson and Laurence Fishburne.
After a remote diamond mine collapses in the far northern regions of Canada, an expert driver leads an impossible rescue mission over a frozen ocean to save the lives of trapped miners. The mission escalates into chaos due to the thawing waters and a threat the rescuers never saw coming.
Marc Goldberg, CEO of Signature Entertainment, released a statement saying:
We are thrilled to release The Ice Road in the UK and Ireland later this year. After the very successful release of Honest Thief we couldn’t be more excited to bring another all action Liam Neeson picture to UK audiences.
The film, written and directed by Jonathan Hensleigh, also stars Holt McCallany, Matt McCoy, Marcus Thomas, Amber Midthunder and Martin Sensmeier.
Signature Entertainment aim to release The Ice Road in the third quarter of 2021.
