LAFF 2017: Vertical Entertainment Nabs Never Here

You Were Never Here, the psychological thriller starring Mireille Enos from executive producers Zachary Quinto and Neal Dodson, has landed itself a new title and distribution before its premiere at this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival.

Per Deadline, Vertical Entertainment has acquired U.S. rights to the newly titled Never Here, which is having its world premiere Sunday. Vertical is planning a day-and-date theatrical release in fourth quarter 2017, followed by a pay TV debut on Starz in early 2018.

Written and directed by Camille Thoman, Never Here centers on Enos’ Miranda, an installation artist who follows, photographs, and documents the lives of strangers to create her art. One night her secret lover witnesses a violent act from Miranda’s apartment window. To protect his identity, Miranda poses as the primary witness, making statements to the police about a crime she did not see, and she begins to create a new piece of work based on these circumstances. It sends Miranda into a maze of doubt and fear, blurring the lines between artist and subject. Sam Shepard, Goran Visnjic, Vincent Piazza, Nina Arianda, Ana Nogueira, and Desmin Borges co-star.

The film was produced by Wonderbar Productions in association with Before the Door Pictures. Julian Cautherley, Radium Cheung, Bronwyn Cornelius, Corey Moosa, Camille Thoman, and Elizabeth Yng-Wong produced; and Greg Ainsworth, Alvin Chau, Luke Daniels, Neal Dodson, Erika Hampson, Brandon K. Hogan, Subi Liang, Dan Milne, Ho-Cheung Pang, Alan Pao, Zachary Quinto, Wenke Sterns, and Alex Tong are executive producers.

The film has its world premiere in the U.S. Fiction Competition section Sunday, June 18th, at 6:15 PM at Arclight Cinema 4 in Culver City.

We’re thrilled to be partnering with Starz and the Never Here team to bring this incredibly visceral film to audiences,” Vertical co-president Rich Goldberg said. “Camille’s distinct vision threads an especially unique story that calls for active participation from every viewer.

More to come.
