iW NEWS | Oscilloscope Gets Reichardt's "Wendy and Lucy"

North American rights to Kelly Reichardt‘s “Wendy and Lucy,” from this year’s Cannes Film Festival, have been acquired by Beastie Boy Adam Yauch‘s upstart distribution company Oscilloscope Pictures. The film, starring Michele Williams, will have its theatrical debut in December at New York City’s Film Forum. The story of a woman and her dog who are sidetracked in Oregon while en route to Alaska, the film is based on Jonathan Raymond‘s short story Train Choir. David Fenkel of Oscilloscope Pictures negotiated the acquisition of the film with Tanja Meissner of Memento Films International, with producers Neil Kopp and filmscience‘s Anish Savjani. The company is anticipating awards season attention for Michelle William’s acclaimed performance in the film’s lead role. [Eugene Hernandez]
