In the pic, an ex-CIA operative is thrown back into a dangerous world when a mysterious woman from his past resurfaces. Now exposed and targeted by a relentless killer and a rogue black ops program, he must rely on skills he thought he left behind in a high-stakes game of survival in this edge-of-your-seat thriller.

“The Painter is a story about our past lives coming back to haunt us” says Steven Paul, who produced for his company SP Media Group, “but what happens when a past you thought was set in stone is rewritten before your very eyes”.

The Painter is directed by Kimani Ray Smith from a screenplay by Brian Buccellato. Scott Karol, President of SP Media Group, an EP on the movie, negotiated the deal.

Rounding out the cast is Marie Avgeropoulos (The 100), Max Montesi (The Last Of Us), Rryla McIntosh (Longlegs) and Luisa D’Oliveira (The 100).

Weber is repped by IAG and BMK-Ent. Voight is repped by The Gersh Agency and Artists Only Management. Bailey is repped by CAA and Luber Roklin Entertainment.
