Sundance 2012: Red Lights Flags Down Distribution
Buried director Rodrigo Cortes' new flick Red Lights has been met with mixed reviews at Sundance (look for ours soon), but that hasn't stopped it from nailing down distro.
According to Variety, Millennium Entertainment has Red Lights in its sights, as CEO Bill Lee's distribution company has closed a deal to acquire U.S. rights to Rodrigo Cortes' paranormal tale.
The twisting psychological thriller premiered Friday night at the jam-packed Eccles Theatre at Sundance.
Sigourney Weaver, Robert De Niro, Cillian Murphy, Toby Jones, Joely Richardson, Leonardo Sbaraglia, and Elizabeth Olsen all star. Cortes produced with Adrian Guerra, while Cindy Cowan exec produced through her Cindy Cowan Entertainment banner.
Two paranormal fraud investigators, the veteran Dr. Margaret Matheson (Weaver) and her young assistant, Tom Buckley (Murphy), study the diverse phenomena of metaphysics with the intention to demonstrate its fraudulent origin. Simon Silver (De Niro), a legendary psychic, perhaps the most famous gifted of all time, returns after thirty years of mysterious absence to become the world's greatest challenger to orthodox science and professional skeptics. Tom begins to develop a dense obsession to silver, whose magnetism is enhanced dangerously with each new manifestation of inexplicable dark phenomena.
