Sundance Selects announced today that they successfully acquired the North American rights to Kat Candler's "Hellion." Written by Candler and starring Aaron Paul, Juliette Lewis, and the hellion himself -- Josh Wiggins-- "Hellion" originally premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

The deal for the film was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions & Productions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers.

The film follows 13-year-old Jacob Wilson (Wiggins in his feature film debut). Obsessed with heavy metal, dirt bike racing and partaking in the occasional act of vandalism with his band of delinquents, Jacob’s behavior has begun to raise concerns around town, especially when it starts to involve his younger brother Wes. Jacob's father, Hollis (played by Paul), must deal with his problematic son while navigating the heart-breaking emotional fallout of his wife's recent death. 

As Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films, said, “Kat Candler has crafted an exquisite and beautiful drama featuring towering performances across the board.  The entire cast here including Aaron Paul as we have never seen him before, and the remarkable arrival of young Josh Wiggins, make this film an absolute must watch for any serious filmgoer."
