The Orchard announced Wednesday that it has acquired U.S. rights to director Ari Gold’s “The Song of Sway Lake.”
Rory Culkin, Robert Sheehan (“Geostorm”) and Mary Beth Peil (“Dawson’s Creek”) star in the film, which follows a young man (Culkin) who plots to steal a valuable, long-lost jazz record from his grandmother’s lake house. His plan is derailed when his accomplice (Sheehan) falls for the matriarch.
The Orchard plans a theatrical release on Sept. 21, with VOD and digital HD to follow four days later.
Gold, who co-wrote the script with Elizabeth Bull, also produced along with Michael Bederman (“Spotlight”), Allison Rose Carter (“American Honey”) and Social Construct’s Zak Kilberg. The film was executive produced by Garrett P. Fennelly and Anne Bernstein.
Evan Morehouse from The Orchard negotiated the U.S. deal with Benjamin Weiss and Derek Kigongo of Paradigm and attorney Orly Ravid from MSK on behalf of the filmmakers.
