Toronto: Chris Evans Directorial Debut 'Before We Go' Gets U.S. Distribution
Radius nabbed the domestic rights to the romance
Radius has acquired the U.S. rights to Chris Evans' directorial debut Before We Go.
The romance about two strangers, starring Evans and Alice Eve (Star Trek: Into Darkness), will have its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival on Friday night. In Before We Go, the couple spends a night in New York City together after missing the last train at Grand Central Terminal.
Radius, which earlier released the Evans-starrer Snowpiercer, plans a second-quarter 2015 release.
CAA and WME Global co-repped domestic rights for the pic, which Evans directed from a script by Ron Bass (Rain Man) and Jen Smolka. Before We Go is produced by Wonderland Sound and Vision and RSVP Entertainment.
Peter Pastorelli, James McGough and Bass executive produce, while Evans, Mark Kassen, McG, Mary Viola, Karen Baldwin, Howard Baldwin and William J. Immerman share producing credits.
Sierra/Affinity is handling international sales for Before We Go.
