IFC Films Purchases Michael Winterbottom’s THE KILLER INSIDE ME

Michael Winterbottom’s controversially violent and gratuitous film, The Killer Inside Me, has been picked up  by IFC Films for approximately $1.5 million for U.S. distribution, and will be released this summer via a small theatrical run along with VOD channels. Read the official press release below:

IFC Films, one of the leading American distributors of independent and foreign films, announced today at the Sundance Film Festival it is acquiring U.S. distribution rights to Michael Winterbottom’s THE KILLER INSIDE ME. Since its premiere on Sunday, it has become the most provocative and discussed films at this year’s festival. Based on the novel by legendary pulp writer Jim Thompson, THE KILLER INSIDE ME stars Casey Affleck, Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson, Simon Baker and Bill Pullman, from a script by John Curran. It is Winterbottom’s first foray into pure American cinema. The film is a Hero Entertainment presentation of a Stone Canyon, Muse, Revolution production in association with Wild Bunch, Curiously Bright Entertainment and Indion Entertainment Group. It was produced by Chris Hanely, Bradford L. Schlei, Andrew Eaton and executive produced by Jordan Gertner and Lily Bright.

THE KILLER INSIDE ME will next be screened in competition at the Berlin Film Festival in February.

The deal for THE KILLER INSIDE ME was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, Vice President of Acquisitions and Co-Production for IFC Films, with Graham Taylor of William Morris Endeavor Entertainment and Carole Baraton of Wild Bunch. Wild Bunch is also a co-producer on the film and handling all International Distribution.

The deal marks the second time IFC Films has worked with Winterbottom and Eaton’s Revolution Films. This February, IFC Films is releasing the highly anticipated THE RED RIDING TRILOGY, a fictionalized account of the investigation into the Yorkshire Ripper.

THE KILLER INSIDE ME tells the story of handsome, charming, unassuming small town sheriff’s deputy named Lou Ford (Casey Affleck). The film takes place in an idyllic West Texas town in the early 1950’s. As a lifelong resident, Ford has difficulty juggling his long-term girlfriend Amy (Kate Hudson), the prostitute named Joyce (Jessica Alba) that he mistakenly falls for, and the sociopathic tendencies inside him. In Thompson’s savage, bleak, blacker than noir universe nothing is ever what it seems.
Michael Winterbottom is a prolific filmmaker who has directed sixteen films in the past thirteen years. He began his career working in British television before moving into features. Three of his films – WELCOME TO SARAJEVO, WONDERLAND and 24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE – have been in competition at the Cannes Film Festival. He also directed the socially conscious films IN THIS WORLD, WELCOME TO GUANTANAMO and A MIGHTY HEART starring Angelina Jolie. Winterbottom’s most recent film, THE SHOCK DOCTRINE, a documentary adaptation of the acclaimed book by Naomi Klein, also premiered at this year’s festival and is currently available nationwide on video-on-demand via Sundance Selects.

Jonathan Sehring, President, IFC Entertainment said, “Since it premiered at Sundance on Sunday, we haven’t been able to stop talking or thinking about THE KILLER INSIDE ME. It is a stylish work of cinema by one of its great directors, with an incredible cast. We are incredibly excited to be working with Michael and Andrew Eaton again and we look forward to bringing this film to America via our theatrical and video-on-demand platforms.”

Jessica Alba at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival

sundancepost

Jessica Alba was seen out and about in Park City, Utah earlier today (Jan 24) for the 2010 Sundance Film Festival where “The Killer Inside Me” will premiere later today at 9.3pm. Click on the previews below to view, and if the premiere photos become available, i shall add them tomorrow morning.

Audiences React to The Killer Inside Me
Filmmaker Michael Winterbottom (24 Hour Party People) had two distinctly different films in the festival, but it wasn’t the one entitled The Shock Doctrine that drew the most polarizing reactions from festival goers. It was his dark, psycho-sexual thriller The Killer Inside Me, a character study of a small-town sheriff (Casey Affleck, who drew kudos, incidentally) who harbors a sinister secret. Critics in attendance reported on a number of mid-movie walkouts — including one by co-star Jessica Alba — due to the extremely violent content in the film, which is based on the 1952 noir novel by Jim Thompson. (For the record, we don’t know why Alba walked out.) Thompson on Hollywood’s Anne Thompson and Screen Crave’s Mali Elfman Tweeted from the scene of the lively Q&A that followed:

“Audience disturbed by shocking violent beating of women. One woman berates Sundance for booking it. Winterbottom moved by book.” – Anne Thompson, Thompson on Hollywood

“Crew on stage & lady yelled out ‘I can’t believe Sundance approved this, it was dark unnecessary & horrible’ then people booed as she left.” – Mali Elfman, Screen Crave.

Alba rep denies film walkout

A representative has brushed off speculation Jessica Alba is disgusted by her violent new movie The Killer Inside Me, after the actress was spotted walking out of its screening.

Alba plays a prostitute who is bludgeoned by a psychotic killer in the upcoming thriller, which has come under fire from critics for its excessive gore.

And the 28 year old sparked rumours that even she couldn’t tolerate the bloody scenes after leaving a theatre halfway through a screening at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah on Sunday.

But her spokesperson insists Alba only left the cinema to catch a plane.

Her rep Brad Cafarelli explains, “This rumour is silly and not accurate at all. Jessica had seen the final version of the film just prior to coming to Sundance and was pleased with the outcome. She came in to support the film and the filmmakers by introducing the screening, which she did, and left right after to get home to her family in L.A., as planned.”
