ATLAS INDEPENDENT’S “REVENGE FOR JOLLY!” SELLS TO SONY PICTURES WORLDWIDE ACQUISITIONS

Atlas Independent announced today Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has acquired Revenge for Jolly!, for distribution in the U.S. and Canada. The acquisition marks the first for the newly-formed affiliate company of Charles Roven’s Atlas Entertainment. A unique dark comedy that examines the moral ambiguity of revenge, the film most recently premiered at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival. The deal was negotiated by Sony with UTA Independent Film Group.

Directed by Chadd Harbold and written by Brian Petsos, Revenge for Jolly! stars Petsos and Oscar Isaac, with special cameos by Elijah Wood, Adam Brody, Ryan Phillippe, and Kristen Wiig among others. The film follows a man (Petsos) who, with the help of his cousin (Isaac), seeks to avenge the death of his beloved dog, who was killed under confusing and suspicious circumstances. The two men follow a series of clues in an attempt to track down the dog’s murderer, leaving a path of destruction in their wake.

Atlas Independent’s William Green and Aaron Ginsburg produced the film alongside Brian Petsos and his company, A Saboteur. Atlas’ Alan Glazer executive produced the project along with Chris Wilmot, Michael Wunderman, Peter Fruchtman and Dan Berk.
