iW NEWS | Cinema Guild Takes U.S. Rights for "The Unforeseen"

U.S. rights to Laura Dunn‘s Sundance ’07 feature “The Unforeseen” have been picked up by The Cinema Guild, the group’s president Philip Hobel announced Monday. Ryan Krivoshey, the company’s director of distribution negotiated the deal with with Josh Braun of Submarine Entertainment and Roger Kass of RingTheJing Entertainment on behalf of the filmmakers. Cinema Guild plans a fall ’07 roll out in New York and Los Angeles, followed by a national release. The film centers around a Texas farm boy who becomes a developer who threatens to transform the pristine hill country into large-scale subdivisions, threatening a fragile limestone aquifer. “The Unforeseen” is described by Cinema Guild as “a grand meditation on the destruction of the American landscape in exchange for fleeting notions of progress and convenience.” “Without a single shot of a polar ice cap, ‘The Unforeseen’ offers a frank, clear-eyed, and nuanced assessment of man’s impact on the environment,” commented Ryan Krivoshey, “Laura Dunn has directed an extraordinarily timely and important film, and we are very excited to bring it to theaters.” [Brian Brooks]
