The movie is directed by Kieran-Darcy Smith, and tells the story of a ranger who investigates a series of mysterious deaths in a small town. The film has been shot already and came to the Cannes Film Festival seeking a U.S. distributor.
Lionsgate has had a busy last few days at Cannes, landing “Genius” (a drama about book editor Max Perkins played by Colin Firth) and “Sea of Trees” (starring Matthew McConaughey as a man who journeys into Japan’s suicide forest).
“By Way of Helena” is produced by Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman. WME is closing the deal in the United States, and Westend Films is handling international territories.

Last week, Kroll revealed that Scott Eastwood (Fury) isn’t playing Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman’s love interest/handler, in Suicide Squad. Sneider contacted Kroll and now has some additional information on the matter.
“Scott Eastwood is not playing Steve Trevor,” Jeff said on the Meet The Movie Press podcast. “What Justin has heard was that Scott Eastwood basically had the choice: he could have a role in Suicide Squad – a smaller role – or he could test for the male lead in Wonder Woman - alongside guys like Alexander Skarsgard and Liam Hemsworth. And he chose the Suicide Squad role. We don’t know what that role is. I’m told that he’s signed on for three pictures. But it isn’t clear if Wonder Woman is actually one of them.”
Don’t expect Skarsgard or Hemsworth to land the role as Jeff says the role of “Steve Trevor is still open, and they are not going back to those guys for testing now that they have a new director.”
