International distributors will get a first look at action thriller “Gasoline Alley” at the upcoming Cannes Market. The film, which stars Bruce Willis, Luke Wilson and Devon Sawa, is represented by Highland Film Group.
The project was first announced at the European Film Market in Berlin, around the time that it was moving into production. Principal photography has now wrapped after set-ups in multiple U.S. locations.

The action follows a take-no-prisoners kind of company boss, played by Sawa, who is accused of a triple murder in Hollywood. He subsequently allies with the two tough detectives (Willis and Wilson) on his tail. And together they uncover a much larger truth than any one of them had imagined.
“Gasoline Alley” is directed by Edward Drake, who recently directed Willis in “Cosmic Sin.” The screenplay is by Tom Sierchio (“The Girl Who Invented Kissing”).
Corey Large (“The November Man,” “Cosmic Sin”) and Sierchio are producing the film with BondIt Media Capital financing. Matthew Helderman, Johnny Messner, Stephen Eads, Bondit’s Grady Craig and Luke Taylor and Highland’s Arianne Fraser and Delphine Perrier are executive producers.
Other credits go to cinematographer Brandon Cox (“Cut Throat City”), production designer Eric Whitney (“Bruno”) and line producer Jon Keyes (“Survivalist”).
Highland Film Group CEO Arianne Fraser called “Gasoline Alley” a killer action thriller with “all the ingredients for commercial success coupled with a storyline and production values that will elevate the film in the marketplace.”
Drake described the film as pitting Los Angeles’ anti-heroes against the “forces trusted to protect us.”
Highland is a growing force in indie film sales and will attend Cannes with a slew of other titles in post-production. These include: Alec Baldwin- and Anne Heche-starring “Supercell,” by Herbert James Winterstern; Ben Foster- and Michael Caine-starring “Medieval,” by Petr Jakl; Josh Duhamel- and Mel Gibson-starring “Bandit,” by Allan Ungar; and “The Good Neighbor,” by Stephan Rick.
