IFC Films walks to "The Ledge" and buys it

IFC Films paid about $1 million to acquire North American rights to Sundance competition title “The Ledge,” the debut feature of writer-director Matthew Chapman.

The drama stars Charlie Hunnam as suicidal hotel manager and Terrence Howard as a detective who tries to convince him not to jump. The film also stars Liv Tyler and Patrick Wilson. IFC plans to release the film day-and-date in theaters and on VOD in June.

The film received mixed reviews after its Friday afternoon premiere, but garnered enough interest for the deal to close at 3am Monday morning. The film’s reps are Kevin Iwashina of Parlay Media, Cassian Elwes and producer Mark Damon.
