Susan Sarandon will return to the big screen this fall in the YouTube-produced thriller “Viper Club”. The streaming platform has concluded a deal with Roadside Attractions to secure a theatrical release for the film. The decision marks a change of strategy for the Google-owned entity which originally planned to release its productions directly on YouTube Premium.

Written by American-Iranian director Maryam Keshavarz and Jonathan Mastro, “Viper Club” will premier at the Toronto International Film Festival, which is set to run from Sept. 6 to 16.


Sarandon plays the lead role in a cast that also features Matt Bomer (“White Collar”), Lola Kirke (“Gone Girl”), Adepero Oduye (“The Big Short”), Sheila Vand (“Argo”), Julian Morris (“Pretty Little Liars”) and Edie Falco (“The Sopranos”).


Originally entitled “Vulture Club”, the film tells the story of Helen (Sarandon), a former ER nurse battling to free her son, a war correspondent, who is held being captive by a terrorist group. When negotiations to secure his release are held up by bureaucracy, Helen discovers a secret community of journalists, philanthropists and lawyers who may be able to help her.

“The extremely talented cast delivered powerful performances, and we are thrilled to debut this film at the Toronto International Film Festival and partner with Roadside to bring the film to theaters this fall,” said Susanne Daniels, YouTube’s global head of original content.

Seven years after “Circumstance”, which was released in 2011, “Viper Club” is Maryam Keshavarz’s second feature.

Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon, also stars in Xavier Dolan’s latest film, “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan”, which will also be presented in Toronto.

“Viper Club” will be released on Oct. 26 in the United States, ahead of of its launch on YouTube Premium in 2019. JB
