Icon Productions has sold the rights to the R-rated crime thriller, Butterfly on a Wheel to Lionsgate Releasing.

Mike Barker is directing the film that stars Pierce Brosnan as a mysterious stranger who arrives in Chicago and terrorizes a happy-seeming married couple (Maria Bello, Gerard Butler) after kidnapping their daughter. Adding The Hollywood Reporter, soon it becomes clear that his outrageous demands are not in pursuit of a big cash payment.

William Morrissey wrote the screenplay for Butterfly on a Wheel; Brosnan also produced the film.
