XLrator Snags Kate Bosworth-Wes Bentley Thriller ‘Amnesiac’

7 January 2015 10:29 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

XLrator Media has picked up North American rights to Amnesiac from director Michael Polish (Twin Falls Idaho) for a summer release through its Macabre genre label. Kate Bosworth stars opposite Wes Bentley in the Misery-esque tale of a man who wakes up in bed after an accident, suffering from memory loss. He begins to suspect his wife isn’t really his real wife and soon finds himself a prisoner in the house.

Mike Le and Amy Kolquist scripted the film, which was produced by Lucas Jarach and Jason Price. Amnesiac is the latest Polish film to star Bosworth, who appeared in the helmer’s 2013 Jack Kerouac drama Big Sur. She’s currently in theaters in the Oscar pic Still Alice opposite Julianne Moore. Bentley was seen recently in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. XLrator Media’s Barry Gordon negotiated the deal with Paradigm’s Ben Weiss and Meghan Oliver.
