Tribeca Film, the Gotham-based distributor that is loosely affiliated with the Tribeca Film Festival, has picked up North American rights to “Starred Up,” the latest film from Scottish helmer David Mackenzie (“Young Adam”).
Film earned strong reviews in its bow at Telluride and Toronto earlier this year. Fox Searchlight is already on board to release the title in the U.K. in the spring; in the States, Tribeca plans a 2014 theatrical release.
Storyline centers on a troubled 19-year-old who ends up in the same prison as his father. Cast includes Jack O’Connell, the “Skins” thesp who appears in Angelina Jolie’s upcoming “Unbroken,” here playing the son opposite Ben Mendelsohn (“The Dark Knight Rises,” “The Place Beyond the Pines”) as his father. Rupert Friend (“Homeland”) appears as a psychotherapist who runs the prison’s anger management program.
