NEW YORK - Magnolia Pictures has acquired U.S. distribution rights to Gaby Dellal’s Angels Crest, the company said Friday.
Magnolia said it is planning a Nov. 25 VOD launch and Dec. 30 theatrical release for the film, which had its world premiere at this year's Tribeca Film Festival.
The film, starring Jeremy Piven, Kate Walsh, Thomas Dekker, Lynn Collins, Mira Sorvino and Elizabeth McGovern, tells the story of a small rural community during the first snow of winter when a three-year-old mysteriously disappears from his father’s truck.
Celsius will handle international rights to the movie.
“Gaby Dellal has made a mark for herself with Angels Crest,” said Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles. “Her direction and the tremendous ensemble make for a moving film experience.”
The screenplay was adapted by Catherine Trieschmann based on a novel by Leslie Schwartz. Tim Perell and William Mulroy served as executive producers.
