Cannes: 'Louder Than Bombs,' Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Goes to The Orchard
Joachim Trier's drama also stars Gabriel Byrne and Isabelle Huppert.
The Orchard has acquired North American rights to Joachim Trier's Louder Than Bombs, starring Gabriel Byrne, Jesse Eisenberg and Isabelle Huppert, the distributor announced today.
The film — which debuted in competition at the Cannes Film Festival — was written by Trier and Eskil Vogt, who also collaborated with Trier on the director’s first two features: Reprise and Oslo, August 31st. Louder also stars Amy Ryan and David Strathairn. The film centers on a father and his two sons as they cope with the death of their wife and mother, respectively.
Louder was produced by Motlys’ Thomas Robsahm, Memento Films’ Alexandre Mallet-Guy, Animal Kingdom’s Joshua Astrachan, Beachside’s Marc Turtletaub and Bona Fide’s Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa. Executive producers include Sigve Endresen, Frederick W. Green, Michael B. Clark, Emilie Georges, Nicholas Shumaker, Naima Abed, Trier and Vogt.
"Louder Than Bombs is quiet, affecting filmmaking at its best, bolstered by master-class performances from a stellar cast," said Paul Davidson, The Orchard's senior vp film and TV.
The deal was negotiated by The Orchard’s Danielle DiGiacomo with UTA Independent Film Group.
