The drama made its world premiere at the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival.

Myriad Pictures and Freestyle have teamed to acquire U.S. rights to Marya Cohn's drama The Girl in the Book, starring Emily VanCamp.

The film will get a 10-city theatrical run and an ultra-VOD release in December.

The Girl in the Book, which was initially funded using Kickstarter, follows the story of young book editor Alice (Revenge's Emily VanCamp) who is asked to manage the re-release of a best-selling book that the author (Michael Nyqvist) partially based on Alice's own experiences.

The film was produced by Gina Resnick and Kyle Heller, with Cohn acting as both writer and director.

In his LAFF review, THR's Justin Lowe wrote, "Cohn competently handles her directorial duties, sticking closely to the indie drama playbook and avoiding appreciable stylistic flourishes."
