Killing Season is an action movie set in the Appalachian Mountains about an American military veteran (De Niro) who has retreated to a remote cabin in the woods. When a rare visitor, a European tourist (Travolta), appears on the scene, the two men strike up an unlikely friendship. But in fact the visitor is a former Serbian soldier bent on revenge. What follows is a tense, action packed battle across some of America's most forbidding landscape that proves the old adage: the purest form of war is one-on-one.

Nu Image/Millennium is taking the lead on international sales at the American Film Market this week, in consultation with Corsan.

"I've loved this project from the moment I read Evan Daugherty's remarkable script," said Corsan CEO Paul Breuls. "It's thrilling, imaginative, unexpected and dominated by two extraordinary characters on a collision course. I'm very pleased this film is moving into production and to be partnered with Avi Lerner and his team at Millennium."
"We're excited to be co-financing and co-producing this film with Corsan, and to be working again with Robert De Niro and John Travolta," said Nu Image/Millennium topper Avi Lerner. "We've never seen these two great actors on screen together before, and we're excited to see what comes of the combination."
