Cinedigm has acquired all North American distribution rights to Reed Morano’s directorial debut “Meadowland” following its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Olivia Wilde and Luke Wilson star in the film, which is described as a haunting depiction of the psychological toll that a tragedy takes on a New York couple.
Chris Rossi wrote the script, which veteran cinematographer Morano chose to make her directorial debut. Wilde, who has been a passionate supporter of the project, serves as a producer alongside Aaron L. Gilbert of Bron Studios, Margot Hand and Matt Tauber.
Jennifer Levine, Jason Cloth of CW Media Finance, Alex Garcia, Santiago Garcia Galvan, Marla Rand, Scott Paterson and Lauren Selig served as the executive producers of “Meadowland,” which will receive a theatrical release in October.
“Meadowland is precisely the sort of compelling, filmmaker-driven and performance-driven work that makes independent film so exciting,” said Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s executive VP of acquisitions. “Wilde is electrifying and Wilson is heartbreaking in Morano’s remarkable debut. It is wonderful to be working with such a deeply talented team.”
The deal was negotiated by Cinedigm’s Kristin Harris with WME Global and Gersh co-representing the filmmakers.
