Weinstein Company and IFC Entertainment Take “Out of the Blue”

Weinstein Company and IFC Entertainment Take "Out of the Blue"

The Weinstein Company and IFC Entertainment have co-acquired all North American rights to the controversial drama “Out of the Blue,” which will be released though IFC’s First Take day and date banner and hit theatres simultaneously with VOD. The Weinstein Company will be releasing the film on DVD through Genius Products, LLC. The joint announcement was made today by Michelle Krumm, EVP of acquisitions for The Weinstein Company and Jonathan Sehring, IFC Entertainment President. Written by Graeme Tetley with director Robert Sarkies, the film, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, is the true story of David Gray who, on November 13, 1990, shot and killed over a dozen townspeople in his hometown Aramoana, a quiet and tight knit community on New Zealand’s South Island. “Out of the Blue” stars Matt Sunderland and Karl Urban and was shot on location earlier this year in New Zealand’s Otago region. “This is one of the eeriest and most riveting films I have seen and is definitely a stand out that will have people on the edge of their seats in front of both big and small screens across the states,” commented Sehring about the film in a statement. IFC First Take has tentatively planned a Spring 2007 theatrical release. [Brian Brooks]
