Out of Toronto, Cinedigm has acquired the rights to Kelly Reichardt’s Night Moves starring Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard. This is the third women directed film to get a deal out of Toronto. IFC took Liza Johnson’s Hateship Loveship and Tribeca took Marion Vernoux’s Bright Days Ahead.
The film follows a group of extremist environmentalists in the Pacific Northwest who are plotting to blow up a dam in the region. Night Moves premiered at the Venice Film Festival and then headed to Toronto.
Cinedigm is planning on releasing Reichardt’s film in the spring of 2014.
