TRIBECA FILM AND WELL GO ACQUIRE U.S. RIGHTS TO CHILLING BACKWOODS THRILLER A SINGLE SHOT

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Tribeca Film and Well Go USA Entertainment today announced they have co-acquired U.S. rights to A Single Shot, directed by David M. Rosenthal (Janie Jones), which had its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, followed by a North American premiere at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. The film, written by Matthew Jones from an adaptation of his critically acclaimed novel of the same name, stars Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, Jeffrey Wright, Jason Isaacs and Kelly Reilly.

Tribeca Film and Well Go USA Entertainment will release this summer beginning August 20th on cable video-on-demand platforms, as well as iTunes, Amazon Watch Instantly, VUDU, and Google Play, followed by a theatrical release in major markets nationwide on September 20, 2013.

Rosenthal’s white-knuckle thriller starts with a bang: a single shot, aimed at a lone deer, that hits and kills a young woman. The hunter, John Moon (Sam Rockwell, Seven Psychopaths), watches her die before discovering a box of money near her body. In a desperate panic, he takes the cash — hiring a low-rent lawyer (William H. Macy, Fargo) to fight his wife’s (Kelly Reilly, Flight) divorce suit — and attempts to cover up the killing. But when he discovers that the money belonged to a group of hardened criminals, the hunter becomes the hunted in this tense cat-and-mouse struggle in the backwoods of West Virginia.

“David M. Rosenthal fashions a backwoods thriller with intense performances by a stellar cast of indie stalwarts and eerily beautiful cinematography,” said Geoffrey Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer Tribeca Enterprises. “Festival audiences were riveted by this dark, tense story and we are looking forward to sharing it with a wider audience through Tribeca Film as a day and date release.”

“I am thrilled join forces with Tribeca and Well Go,” said Rosenthal. “I had a great experience with Tribeca releasing my last film and it’s fantastic to once again have such supportive and passionate partners.”

“Tribeca has a long standing track record of excellence and has demonstrated an impressive care for films and filmmakers, so we cannot be happier to be partnering up with them for the release of A Single Shot, a film we are all supremely proud of,” added Keith Kjarval on behalf of the producers.

BLACK SWANU.S. Release Date: December 1, 2010

Cast: Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel, Mila Kunis, Barbara Hershey and Winona Ryder
Director: Darren Aronofsky



A psychological thriller set in the world of New York City ballet, BLACK SWAN stars Natalie Portman as Nina, a featured dancer who finds herself locked in a web of competitive intrigue with a new rival at the company (Mila Kunis). A Fox Searchlight Pictures release by visionary director Darren Aronofsky (THE WRESTLER), BLACK SWAN takes a thrilling and at times terrifying journey through the psyche of a young ballerina whose starring role as the duplicitous swan queen turns out to be a part for which she becomes frighteningly perfect.

BLACK SWAN follows the story of Nina (Portman), a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her retired ballerina mother Erica (Barbara Hershey) who zealously supports her daughter’s professional ambition. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake , Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
