Tribeca Film today announced it has acquired all U.S. rights to Spanish director Gonzalo López-Gallego’s mind-bending thriller Open Grave starring Sharlto Copley (District 9, Elysium), Joseph Morgan (“The Vampire Diaries,”” The Originals”), Josie Ho (“Contagion”), and Thomas Kretschmann (Valkyrie, Wanted).
Open Grave will premiere at the prestigious international genre festival, Sitges Film Festival, in Spain this month, before its December day and date release in the U.S. via Tribeca Film. The film had its world premiere at the MotelX Festival in Portugal this past September.
“The high-concept Open Grave follows a man (Copley) who wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Fleeing the scene, he breaks into a nearby house and is met at gunpoint by a group of terrified strangers, all suffering from memory loss. Suspicion gives way to violence as the group starts to piece together clues about their identities, but when they uncover a threat that’s more vicious than each other, they are forced to figure out what brought them all together — before it’s too late.“
The film is produced by William Green and Aaron L. Ginsburg of Atlas Independent, Michael B. Wunderman, and in association with 852 Films.
