IFC Films Nabs Stephen Dorff Mystery Thriller 'Don't Go' for U.S.
David Gleeson's Irish indie also stars Melissa George of 'Grey’s Anatomy.'
IFC Films has nabbed U.S rights to David Gleeson's Don't Go, an Irish mystery thriller in which Stephen Dorff and Melissa George play a grief-stricken couple struggling to cope with the loss of their child from a devastating accident.
IFC plans an Oct. 26 theatrical release for the indie, which also stars Simon Delaney and Charlotte Bradley. Co-written by Gleeson (Cowboys & Angels, The Front Line) and Ronan Blaney, the film follows the couple as they relocate to a small beachside town in Ireland, where Hazel (George) begins to fear for her husband’s sanity as he begins to have vivid, mysterious dreams about his lost little girl, convinced he can bring her back to life.
Nathalie Lichtenthaeler produced Don’t Go through her Ireland-based production company Wide Eye Films.
"IFC’s hugely impressive record of reaching large audiences with prestigious, thought-provoking films makes them the perfect partner to bring this beautiful, unsettling, genre-bending supernatural thriller to U.S. screens," Lichtenthaeler, Gleeson's collaborator on Cowboys & Angels, said in a statement.
Executive producers include Dorff, as well as Michael Helfant and Bradley Gallo from Amasia Entertainment, which co-financed the film with Screen Ireland, BAI and Northern Ireland Screen.
The deal for the pic was negotiated by IFC Films and Paradigm on behalf of the producers. Radiant Films International are selling international rights.
