Drafthouse Films and Films We Like Nab Ari Folman's 'The Congress,' Starring Robin Wright

Drafthouse Films and Films We Like have snapped up North American rights to Ari Folman’s animated-live-action hybrid “The Congress,” which recently made its world premiere at Cannes in the Directors Fortnight sidebar. The film stars Robin Wright as an aging actress who participates in a radical experiment to keep her career afloat: She creates a digital replica of herself.

Harvey Keitel, Jon Hamm and Paul Giamatti also star in the film, which is loosely based on Stanislaw Lem’s science-fiction novel “The Futurological Congress.” The film is Folman’s follow-up to 2008’s Oscar-nominated “Waltz with Bashir.”

Drafthouse plans a theatrical and VOD release for 2014.

Our TOH! exclusive interview with Folman on “The Congress” is here.
