Actor Katie Aselton’s directorial debut, Black Rock, premiered last night as part one the Midnight Titles at the Sundance Film Festival, and it’s already found distribution with LD Entertainment. I’d expect to see it in theaters sometime this year.
Per Deadline, “LD Entertainment is closing a North American distribution deal for Black Rock, the thriller that premiered last night in a midnight screening at The Library. I’ve heard six figures and it’s going to be a theatrical release… I’ve heard several distributors chased this, including Gold Circle, Lionsgate, Magnolia and IFC. ”
Aselton’s husband Mark Duplass (Baghead, Cyrus) wrote the screenplay that “follows what happens when three childhood friends meet for a weekend getaway on an isolated island and discover that they have company.”
Lake Bell (“The League”), Kate Bosworth (Strawdogs, Superman Returns), Jay Paulson (“Happy Town”), Anslem Richardson and Will Bouvier will co-star with Aselton.
“I grew up watching classic suspense films and have long had the idea of making a girl-based thriller where the threat to the characters is very real, and the audience is left with the terrifying thought ‘this could happen to me,” said Aselton earlier this year.
