ThinkFilm nabs Wyatt’s ‘Escapist’

Existential thriller stars Cox, Fiennes, Lewis

ThinkFilm has grabbed domestic rights to existential thriller and Sundance preem “The Escapist” for about $1 million.

Stylish actioner starring Brian Cox, Joseph Fiennes, Dominic Cooper and Damian Lewis marks the feature debut of Brit helmer Rupert Wyatt.

Nonlinear story cuts between past and present following an inmate as he plots his escape and races the clock to see his drug-addled daughter.

“It’s arresting, it’s like nothing we’ve ever seen on film before,” said ThinkFilm topper Mark Urman, who plans to open the film in October in Gotham and Los Angeles and then platform with a quick, broad, week-by-week expansion.
