Tribeca Film and Well Go USA Entertainment announced today they have co-acquired U.S. rights to "A Single Shot," directed by David M. Rosenthal ("Janie Jones") and written by Matthew Jones. The film had its North American Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. The ensemble includes Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, Jeffrey Wright, Jason Isaacs and Kelly Reilly.
Rockwell plays a West Virginia hunter who accidentally shoots and kills a woman in the woods. When he finds a box of money near her body, he takes it to fight his wife's divorce suit. But he soon realizes he's handling dirty money, the criminals who lay claim to it are willing to hunt him to get it back.
"David M. Rosenthal fashions a backwoods thriller with intense performances by a stellar cast of indie stalwarts and eerily beautiful cinematography," said Geoffrey Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer Tribeca Enterprises. "Festival audiences were riveted by this dark, tense story and we are looking forward to sharing it with a wider audience through Tribeca Film as a day and date release." David M. Rosenthal has a good history with Tribeca Film, who distributed his last movie.
Tribeca and Well Go will release "A Single Shot" on VOD August 20, with a theatrical release on September 20.
