A number of Ingenious titles were acquired for US distribution at the recent Cannes Film Festival
Sony Pictures Classics bought After The Wedding and are planning an August release with an awards campaign for both Michelle Williams and Julianne Moore. The film was produced by Magritz Productions.
Sony Pictures Classics have also bought The Song of Names. The film is likely to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival and should be released in the US prior to Christmas in order to qualify for an awards run. Riba Productions produced the film.
The US distributor Bleecker Street has acquired rights to Dream Horse and Warner Bros has the UK. A number of other studios are jostling to acquire further international rights. The film is produced by Popara Films and will soon finish shooting in Wales.
Lionsgate has bought US rights to The Doorman which is currently filming in Romania. The film is produced by Gora Films.
The first film from Solstice Studios, with whom Ingenious Media has a strategic partnership, was launched for international sales. Academy Award winner Russell Crowe stars in this psychological thriller, which takes an ordinary, everyday incident to a terrifying conclusion in telling the story of a mother who leans on her car horn at the wrong time, to the wrong guy. Road rage doesn’t begin to describe what he’s about to do to her and everyone she knows. The film, titled Unhinged, is being produced by Burek Films and will commence filming in July. Solstice is targeting a release date in the US in the autumn of 2020. Click here to read more.
