IFC Midnight Buys Jason Patric's Thriller 'The Confines' for North America (Exclusive)
First-time feature director Eytan Rockaway's The Confines has landed a North American home with IFC Midnight.
The deal comes days after the psychological thriller, starring Jason Patric and Louisa Krause, made its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
In the film, Krause (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Bluebird), plays a struggling single mother who takes a nighttime security job in an abandoned apartment building with a sinister past. She soon questions her sanity and finds herself roaming the rotting catacombs beneath the building when her scurrilous on-duty partner and a local vagrant begin toying with her. Mark Margolis also stars, with Rockaway directing from a script by Ido Fluk.
Producers are C Plus Pictures' Mike Landry, Carlos Velazquez and Rockaway.
"As a filmmaker from New York, I've always looked at IFC for their stamp of quality," Rockaway said.
The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, senior vp of acquisitions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films, and CAA on behalf of the filmmakers.
