Millennium Entertainment Acquires 'Charlie Countryman,' Starring Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood

Millennium Entertainment has acquired U.S. rights to “The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman,” starring Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood. The film, directed by award-winning commercial director Fredrik Bond, premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival and later competed at Berlin. The company has yet to announce a release date for the drama.

The film stars LaBeouf as Charlie, an American who heads to Bucharest, only to fall in love with Gabi (Wood), a beautiful musician. Unfortunately for Charlie, a vicious gangster has already laid claims on Gabi.

“In his theatrical debut, Fredrik Bond’s has created a stylish, action-packed ride that hooks you from the first moments and never lets go,” stated Millennium Entertainment CEO Bill Lee. “This is a perfect addition to our slate and we expect the film to draw audiences in all windows of release.”

Here’s a scene from the film:

It might not matter given the mostly terrible reviews, but I'm betting that by release time it will be called just "Charlie" or "Charlie C." The moviegoing public simply cannot handle that many syllables, don't you know?

i know they're going for a magical movie moment or something in that clip, but it's borderline cheesy. still, love the cinematography and color grading. reminds me of Chungking Express.
