The Nicole Kidman-starring drama Strangerland is selling to Alchemy, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Reps for the thriller, which premiered Friday at the Sundance Film Festival, are negotiating with Alchemy, the independent distributor formerly known as Millennium Entertainment.
The price for North American rights is said to be just under $1.5 million, according to sources. A multiplatform component is involved as well.
The feature debut of Kim Farrant centers on a man-crazy teenage girl and her younger brother, who go missing in the Australian outback. Joseph Fiennes co-stars.
THR‘s film critic Boyd van Hoeij said in his review that “Kidman and Fiennes don’t exactly combust onscreen.” He added that the “film’s theatrical prospects aren’t huge, some gorgeous widescreen photography notwithstanding.”
CAA made the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
