A24 has nabbed U.S. rights to "Son of a Gun," an Australian heist thriller starring Ewan McGregor, Variety reports.
The debut feature from Julius Avery, who won a Cannes' jury prize back in 2008 with his short film "Jerrycan," "Son of a Gun" also stars Alicia Vikander and Brenton Thwaites. McGregor plays Australia's public enemy #1.
A24 has been on a buying spree at Cannes. Earlier today, we reported that the company has acquired the new Atom Egoyan thriller "The Captive," starring Ryan Reynolds.
