Tribeca Film Acquires 'Open Grave' Starring 'Elysium' Baddie Sharlto Copley

Tribeca Film has acquired U.S. rights to Spanish director Gonzalo López-Gallego’s thriller “Open Grave,” starring “District 9” and “Elysium” star Sharlto Copley. The film is soon to premiere at the international genre festival Sitges Film Festival in Spain this month. Tribeca Film plans to release it this December in the states.

Here’s the synopsis per Tribeca Film:

The high-concept “Open Grave”
follows a man (Copley) who wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no
memory of who he is or how he got there. Fleeing the scene, he breaks
into a nearby house and is met at gunpoint by a group of terrified
strangers, all suffering from memory loss. Suspicion gives way to
violence as the group starts to piece together clues about their
identities, but when they uncover a threat that’s more vicious than each
other, they are forced to figure out what brought them all together —
before it’s too late.

highly original thriller by Spanish helmer Gonzalo López-Gallego is as
full of mystery and suspense as it is of bodies and terror,” said Geoff Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer of Tribeca Enterprises.
