Dave Matthews' Film Company Picks Up 'The Woman in the Fifth'

ATO, co-founded by musician Dave Matthews and music executive Coran Capshaw, has acquired North American rights to The Woman in the Fifth, a psychological thriller from My Summer of Love director Pawel Pawlikowski.

ATO, which has Casino Jack in release, aims to open Fifth later this year.

The movie, an adaptation of a novel by Douglas Kennedy, centers on an American writer (Ethan Hawke) in Paris who embarks on an affair with an elegant and mysterious widow (Kristin Scott Thomas) who just might have something to do with the murders that start taking place around him.

The film was produced by Carole Scotta, Caroline Benjo and Simon Arnal of Haut et Court with the support of Tessa Ross and Sue Bruce-Smith from Film 4, in association with the U.K. Film Council, Coficup-Backup Films, Memento Films International, the Polish Film Institute and Banque Postale Image 4, in co-production with SPI Poland.
