‘Knox Goes Away’ Trailer Bows, Directed And Starring Michael Keaton

Michael Keaton is back, releasing the trailer for Knox Goes Away, the story of a principled hit man.

Saban Films has set the U.S. release date for Knox Goes Away, the thriller marking Michael Keaton’s second feature behind the camera, in which he also stars opposite Al Pacino, James Marsden, Marcia Gay Harden, and more. Pic will bow exclusively in theaters nationwide on March 15, having launched out of last year’s Toronto Film Festival.

Scripted by Gregory Poirier (National Treasure: Book of Secrets), Knox Goes Away has Keaton playing John Knox, a hit man attempting to make amends before his recently discovered dementia takes over. Aided by a trusted friend (Pacino) with his own shady past, Knox races against the police — and his own rapidly deteriorating mind — to save his estranged son (Marsden) from a vengeance-fueled mistake and “cash out” before it’s too late.

Also starring in the pic are Suzy Nakamura, John Hoogenakker, Joanna Kulig, Ray McKinnon and Lela Loren. In addition to Keaton, producers included Brookstreet’s Trevor Matthews and Nick Gordon, as well as Sugar23’s Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta. Exec producers include Jonathan Saba, Carter Stanton, Jillian Kay, Nick Blasko, Wayne Carmona, David Gendron, Michael Hansen, Nate Holthouser, Andy Huang, Ali Jazayeri, Scott Lake, Eric London, Donald Povieng, Dina Randazzo, Ronald Richardson and Viviana Zarragoitia. FilmNation Entertainment is handling international rights.
