EXCLUSIVE: IFC Films has picked up the U.S. distribution rights to Out Of Blue. The Carol Morley written and directed crime drama had its premiere at this year’s Toronto Film Festival and will be released in theaters sometime next year. Patricia Clarkson (The Green Mile), Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom), James Caan (Misery), Toby Jones (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), and Mamie Gummer (End Of Tour).
Based on a novel by Martin Amis, the story follows a New Orleans homicide detective Mike Hoolihan (Clarkson) as she investigates the shooting of leading astrophysicist and black hole expert Jennifer Rockwell (Gummer). Mike is rarely affected by what she sees – but something about this scene affects her, flooding her senses and completely overwhelming her. As she gets deeper into the case, her quest for the truth completely shakes her view of the universe, and ultimately herself.
Luc Roeg, Cairo Cannon, and Maggie Monteith produced the pic.
