The North American rights to Jessica Biel‘s thriller, Bleeding Heart, have been acquired by Gravitas Ventures.
The film, which also stars Girls actress Zosia Mamet, follows the story of a yoga trainer (Biel) who finds herself behaving in an out-of-character fashion, in order to protect her newly discovered sister (Mamet) from an abusive boyfriend.
Diane Bell wrote and directed the movie, which also stars Grey’s Anatomy‘s Kate Burton, as well as Edi Gathegi and Joe Anderson.
The deal was negotiated by Nolan Gallagher of Gravitas Ventures and by Alex Saks at ICM Partners and attorney Lawrence Kopeikin of Morris Yorn on behalf of the filmmakers.
“We’re looking forward to growing our relationship with the team at Gravitas,” said producer Jonathan Schwartz, whose credits also include indie darling, Like Crazy.
In April, Bleeding Heart premiered in April at the Tribeca Film Festival. Gravitas plans on releasing the film on demand Nov. 3, and in theaters on Dec. 11.
