Bellesa Films announced that it has signed a worldwide distribution deal with Paramount Pictures to release “Dangerously Woman,” a thriller starring Emma Stone.
The film will be released in October and will be distributed in North America by Warner Bros. Pictures, with a theatrical release in the U.K. in December.
“Dangersome Woman” follows the life of a woman who is kidnapped by a gangster in the 1950s, who is pursued by her ex-husband who kidnaps the woman in a brutal revenge plot.
“We’re thrilled to be part of Bellesa’s global expansion,” said Jeff Goldblum, co-founder of Bellisa Films and Paramount Pictures.
“Emma Stone is an incredible talent and a terrific addition to the Bellesa family and the Bellissas world.”
“Dirty Dancing” actress and “Dancing with the Stars” contestant Rachel McAdams will play the character of the woman.
She will join the cast of the Bellas upcoming “Dance with the Gods” film.
The director of “Dancer,” Robert De Niro, will also star in the film.
“It’s a big deal for Bellesa and Paramount to have such a star in a film that will be the first of its kind,” said Steven Golin, Bellesa Film Group chairman.
“Rachel McAdams is an absolute legend and an extraordinary talent.”
“She’s an amazing actress and we’re thrilled that she’ll be part the Belles cinematic journey,” said Bellesa Group President John G. Bell.
“Bellesa’s world has expanded to include many other incredible talents, and we look forward to having Rachel and her friends in the world.”
The film follows the story of an unlikely group of women who go to war with an enemy that has kidnapped and held them as slaves.
The women are eventually rescued and reunited with their captors.
“What I love about this project is that it’s a very authentic story, a true story that tells a very personal story,” said McAdams, who stars in the movie as a former slave and an escaped convict who is freed.
“I was honored to be a part of it.
I’ve always wanted to work with Bellesa, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.”
The movie will be directed by Steven Soderbergh, who also helmed the upcoming “The Social Network,” “Gravity,” and “The Danish Girl.”
