Image Entertainment to acquire The Confession starring Kiefer Sutherland


MUMBAI: In its most recent agreement, Image Entertainment, Inc. is in final negotiations to obtain the rights to release the cutting-edge web series, The Confession starring Kiefer Sutherland.

The series will be reformatted into a feature length film. Image Entertainment will have both the home entertainment and digital rights to The Confession.

“This web series is truly unique and has gained a dedicated following since its debut in late March. We look forward to working with the producers and Digital Broadcasting Group to create an edge-of-your-seat thriller,” said Image’s chief acquisitions officer Bill Bromiley.

Starring Kiefer Sutherland, The Confession is a story of redemption and an exploration of good and evil featuring a hit man (Sutherland), and a priest (John Hurt). The story begins on Christmas Eve, when the hit-man enters a church to confess his sins to the priest. Through a series of gripping flashbacks, the Confessor’s journey is revealed – laying out what has brought him to this moment and leading the audience to the dramatic ending where the man’s chances at ultimate redemption hang in the balance. While at first the Confessor seems to be an evil, cold-blooded killing machine and the Priest the ultimate arbiter of good, as the series develops, it becomes clear that both characters are much more complicated than either could have suspected.
