Starring Emile Hirsch and Kate Bosworth
Screen Media, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment (Nasdaq: CSSE) company, announced today the acquisition of all North American rights to the upcoming psychological thriller The Immaculate Room. Written and directed by Mukunda Michael Dewil(Vehicle 19), the film stars Emile Hirsch and Kate Bosworth, with Ashley Greene and M. Emmet Walsh. The film is produced by Daniel Baur, Joel David Moore and Doug Murray. The film is executive produced by Ryan Reaney, William G. Santor, Andrew Chang-Sang, and John Hills, and co-produced by Max Osswald. Radiant Films International is handling international sales for this film and presented the title at the EFM. Screen Media plans to release the film as a day and date release in the second half of 2022.
The Immaculate Room follows a seemingly perfect couple who take part in a psychological experiment that will reward them $5 million if they can stay in a perfectly white room for 50 days. But the room is much more than it seems, and a hidden past and private demons will reveal shameful truths that they may not survive.
“The Immaculate Room is a clever, constantly surprising sci-fi thriller,” said Screen Media in a statement. “It was a joy to work with such talented filmmakers, cast and crew that made this nightmare come to life.”
Seth Needle, EVP of Global Acquisitions and Co-Productions at Screen Media, negotiated the deal with Tim Brown of Joker Films on behalf of the production.
Screen Media recently acquired Kevin Lewis’ follow up to Willy’s Wonderland, The Accursed starring Mena Suvari, Gigi Gaston’s 9 Bullets starring Lena Headey and Sam Worthington, and Philip Noyce’ Fast Charlie starring Pierce Brosnan, and is set to release Gold starring Zac Efron in March of 2022. Recent releases include Manny Perez’s La Soga Salvation acquired out of the Toronto International Film Festival, Casey Tebo’s Black Friday starring Devon Sawa and Bruce Campbell, James Nunne’s One Shot starring Scott Adkins and Ryan Phillippe, and Brent Wilson’s documentary Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road.
