Gravitas Ventures has acquired North American rights to New Delhi-set crime thriller Line Of Descent starring Brendan Fraser, from Moonrise Pictures.

Abhay Deol (Manorama, Six Feet Under), Ronit Roy (Udaan), Neeraj Kabi (Ship of Theseus), and Max Beesley (Homeland, Suits) also star in the story about three brothers who feud over the direction of the family business after their mafia boss father dies.

Fraser plays an arms dealer who sees the family’s dysfunction as an opportunity to grow his business.

Rohit Karn Batra wrote and directed Line Of Descent, which will be released in North American theaters and on demand on December 13.

“By relocating the setting, Rohit has given a classic crime saga framework a fresh spin, integrating cultural elements that introduce new sources of suspense,” said Tony Piantedosi, Gravitas Ventures, Vice President of Acquisitions.

Piantedosi negotiated the deal with Colette Aguilar of Moonrise Pictures.
