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."
