A24 has acquired the rights to the apocalyptic “Into the Forest.” The drama stars Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood and was directed by Patricia Rozema.
Set in a not too distant future, “Into the Forest” follows a pair of sisters who emerge from a remote forest to confront a world on the brink of ending. The film premiered at TIFF, where Indiewire’s Charles Bramesco wrote, “Though not without its errors, ‘Into The Forest’ turns a profoundly human eye to what just may be the very end of humanity itself.”
“Into the Forest” is based on Jean Hegland’s 1996 novel of the same name. The acquisition deal was reportedly made in the low seven figures.
