ScreenDaily.com — Lionsgate UK has picked up Karyn Kusama’s crime thriller Destroyer, starring Nicole Kidman, following the film’s premiere at Telluride and screening in Toronto.
International rights are being sold by Thorsten Schumacher’s Rocket Science. Annapurna will release in the US.
Kidman stars in the film as a Los Angeles police officer who, as a young cop, was placed undercover with a gang in the California desert. When the leader of the gang re-emerges many years later, the officer must work her way back through the remaining members and into her own history to finally reckon with her demons.
Tatiana Maslany, Sebastian Stan, Bradley Whitford, Toby Kebbell, and Scoot McNairy also star in the film that was fully financed by 30WEST. It was produced by Fred Berger of Automatik with Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, who also wrote the screenplay.
Screen’s review said that Kidman ”brings such compelling conviction to her role as a tormented detective that she single handedly imbues the film with urgency and authenticity”.
Lionsgate has had a busy month, also taking UK rights to Max Minghella’s feature debut Teen Spirit, with Elle Fanning, Kristoffer Nyholm’s thriller Keepers, starring Gerard Butler, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s Toronto drama Farming, starring Kate Beckinsale and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Peter Cattaneo’s upcoming Military Wives, with Sharon Horgan and Kristin Scott-Thomas.

Deadline.com — Roadside Attractions is planning a wide 2019 theatrical release for Todd Robinson’s The Last Full Measure. The distributor has acquired U.S. rights on the Vietnam drama that stars Avengers: Infinity War‘s Sebastian Stan along with Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Samuel L. Jackson, Ed Harris, Peter Fonda, Diane Ladd, Amy Madigan, Jeremy Irvine and Bradley Whitford.
The film recounts an untold story about the heroism of American soldiers in Vietnam. Irvine plays William Pitsenbarger, an Air Force medic who saved over 60 men in one of the harshest battles of the Vietnam War. Offered the chance to escape on the last helicopter out of the combat zone, Pitsenbarger stayed behind to save and defend the lives of his fellow soldiers. Twenty years later, his comrade in arms (Hurt) and father (Plummer) seek the help of investigator Scott Huffman (Stan) and other surviving veterans of the battle to finally procure him The Congressional Medal of Honor he deserved.
“Todd Robinson’s riveting drama chronicles one man’s sacrifice and valor on the battlefield, and we believe it also highlights an aspect of American patriotism overdue for recognition. Everyone should know about William Pitsenbarger’s bravery and life, and it’s a privilege to bring this film to theaters where it should be seen,” said Roadside’s Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff.
Robinson also wrote the script. Timothy Scott Bogart, Mark Damon, Nicholas Cafritz, Robert Reed Peterson, Shaun Sanghani, Michael Bassick, Adi Cohen and Lauren Selig are producers. Foresight Unlimited produced in association with Rainmaker Films, Lightbox Pictures, Provocator, SSS Entertainment and BCL Finance Group. The U.S. deal was negotiated by ICM Partners and Foresight’s Damon, while Roadside Attractions was repped by Cohen. Foresight has international sales.
Sebastian is said to be featured in the latest issue of L’Offciel Russia. Below you’ll find some handsome new shots from the feature which was posted recently by the photographer. You can view them in the gallery now.
