Millennium Entertainment announced Thursday that the company has acquired all U.S. rights to Puncture, a film about a drug-addicted “townie” who takes on a medical supply corporation.

The legal minded drama, which stars Chris Evans, will see a fall 2011 release in theaters, Millennium’s CEO said in a release.

“We’re thrilled to add this inspiring film to our slate and to bring Puncture to the US audience,” Millennium CEO Bill Lee said.

Written by Chris Lopata, Puncture premiered earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival and was directed by Adam Kassen and Mark Kassen.

“Adam and Mark took a subject matter that was very personal to them and turned it into a gripping drama,” Lee added.

Mark Kassen, Brett Cullen, Marshel Bell, Vinessa Shaw and Michael Biehn also star in the film.

The deal to land Puncture was negotiated by Vincent Scordino, director of acquisitions for Millennium Entertainment, and CAA, which packaged the project.
