Strand Releasing Buys Sundance Drama 'California Solo' Starring Robert Carlyle

Robert Carlyle in "California Solo."
Strand Releasing has acquired all US rights to Marshall Lewy's "California Solo," which made its world premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

"California Solo" stars Robert Carlyle as a former Britpop rocker-turned-southern California farm worker who faces deportation after a DUI. 

The film was written and directed by Lewy and also stars Alexia Rasmussen, Kathleen Wilhoite, A Martinez, Michael Des Barres and Danny Masterson. 

Mynette Louie produced the film. "California Solo" is co-produced by Ross Girard, an in-house producer for Michel Gondry's Partizan, and is executive produced by Carlyle, Joan Huang of Cherry Sky Films, and Rick Rosenthal and Nick Morton of Whitewater Films.

Jon Gerrans of Strand Releasing negotiated the deal with Ryan Kampe of Visit Films. Strand plans for a fall theatrical release.

Lewy previously wrote and directed "Blue State" starring Anna Paquin. He's adapting the New York Times bestseller "Born to Run" for Peter

Sarsgaard to direct and is prepping his next film as a director, "Exodus," produced by Michael Roiff, Fred Berger, and Ross Katz.
