Amplify nabs “Little Accidents” Elizabeth Banks’ hit Sundance drama

PanARMENIAN.Net - Cementing itself as a major buyer of Sundance movies with its third purchase from this year's festival, Amplify has acquired all U.S. rights to Sara Colangelo's acclaimed Sundance drama “Little Accidents”, TheWrap said.

Inspired by Colangelo's 2010 Sundance short of the same name, “Little Accidents” is the story of a small coal town reeling from a recent mining disaster. When tragedy strikes again, its inhabitants’ buried secrets begin to spill out, threatening to unravel the delicate threads that hold the community together.

Boyd Holbrook and Elizabeth Banks star alongside Jacob Lofland, Josh Lucas and Chloë Sevigny.

“Sara has made a film of true authenticity and accomplishment,” said Amplify's Logan Mulvey. “We couldn't be more thrilled to share this film with audiences around the country.”

“We're incredibly excited to have a home for ‘Little Accidents' at Amplify, and thrilled to be working creatively with them to bring our film to a wide U.S. audience,” said Colangelo.

“Little Accidents” was a production of Maiden Voyage Pictures, Archer Gray Productions, TideRock Media, Soaring Flight Productions and Mindsmack Productions. Written and directed by Sara Colangelo, the film was produced by Anne Carey, Jason Michael Berman, Thomas B. Fore, and Summer Shelton, and executive produced by Chris Columbus, Amy Nauiokas, Eleanor Columbus, Ruth Mutch, Richard Loughran, Kwesi Collisson, Mike Feuer and Todd Feuer.

The deal was orchestrated by Kent Sanderson on behalf of Amplify and by WME on behalf of the filmmakers.

Formed in 2014 from a merger of innovative theatrical distributor Variance Films (“Sound City,” “Red Hook Summer”) and leading digital distributor GoDigital, Amplify uses cutting edge marketing and distribution techniques with a focus on working directly with filmmakers to craft hand-tailored release campaigns for each film. Led by an executive team comprised of GoDigital's Logan Mulvey, Variance Films’ Dylan Marchetti, and former Focus Features executive Kent Sanderson, Amplify is financed by Preferred Ventures.

Upcoming releases from Amplify include Terry Gilliam's “The Zero Theorem,” Stuart Murdoch's pop musical “God Help The Girl” and AJ Edwards’ Terence Malick-produced historical drama “The Better Angels.”
