Kimberly Fox to launch MadRiver sales arm

5 February 2016 9:34 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Megan Ellison’s sales chief is joining Marc Butan’s MadRiver Pictures as a partner and will launch the international sales arm in Berlin.

The new division will handle sales on all MadRiver films and those from Christopher Woodrow’s Vendian Entertainment, which has made a strategic investment in MadRiver Pictures following the $30m revolving equity investment it committed to when the company launched last May.

MadRiver’s upcoming slate includes Burr Steers’ new release Pride & Prejudice & Zombies starring Lily James, John Hillcoat’s imminent crime thriller Triple 9 with Chiwetel Ejiofor, Casey Affleck and Woody Harrelson, and James Gray’s The Lost City Of Z starring Charlie Hunnam.

The company is in pre-production on Peter Landesman’s Felt, which was announced during the Afm last November and stars Liam Neeson. Sierra/Affinity handles sales on that title.

Fox will continue to run the Annapurna International label, whose titles include Richard Linklater’s upcoming SXSW opener [link=tt »

Casey Affleck Is Out Of Options And Out Of Time In Pulse-Pounding Triple 9 TV Spot

1 February 2016 2:21 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Casey Affleck finds himself caught between a rock, a hard place and a moral conundrum in the latest TV spot for Open Road Films’ heist thriller, Triple 9, which you can check out over at Coming Soon.

John Hillcoat’s anticipated actioner tells the tale of Affleck’s rookie cop Chris Allen, who is soon caught up in a corrupt maelstrom of dirty cops and seedy Russian gangsters. Bribed by the mob, Affleck’s fellow law enforcers begin plotting a deadly heist that involves ringing in a “Triple 9,” causing the city’s response unit to scramble in search of a hoax while they carefully enact their plan on the other side of town.

Less a foolproof plan and more an exercise in risking their lives for a quick buck, today’s latest snippet showcases just how quickly things turn from bad to worse, with Woody Harrelson’s world-weary detective »

Following the red band trailer released back in October, Open Road Films has debuted a new green band trailer for their upcoming movie Triple 9, in theaters February 26. This action-thriller will be going up against the 20th Century Fox biopic Eddie the Eagle and Lionsgate's Gods of Egypt next month. Casey Affleck headlines an all-star cast including Woody Harrelson, Anthony Mackie, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul and Norman Reedus.
