Well Go Claims US Rights To Jamie M. Dagg's RIVER
River stars Rossif Sutherland (half-brother of Kiefer) as an American doctor volunteering in the North of Laos, who becomes a fugitive after attempting to break up the sexual assault of a young woman. Also starring Ted Atherton (Max Payne), Sara Botsford (The Fog), and Vitaya Pansringarm (Only God Forgives), River was produced by Nick Sorbara, whose previous credits include Bruce McDonald's excellent Pontypool, and Mattie Do, director of the recently wrapped Beloved Sister and Chanthaly, Laos' first ever horror film.
Our own Shelagh M. Rowan-Legg wrote of River, after catching it at TIFF:
"As a man-on-the-run film, River is excellent, stripping down to the core of this narrative with aggressive and engaging shots and a great central performance."
River is currently scheduled for a Summer 2016 US release.
Full Disclosure: Our own Todd Brown served as an Executive Producer on the film, which was sold by XYZ Films, where Todd is also a partner and I occasionally do some stuff.
