Strangerland director Kim Farrant has signed with Gersh, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The former actress is making her feature debut at Sundance with the drama, which stars Nicole Kidman and Joseph Fiennes as a couple whose teenage children suddenly disappear from their remote Australian desert town. Hugo Weaving also stars as a local cop leading the search. The film will compete in the festival's World Cinema Dramatic category.
