Western pic world preemed at Edinburgh

LONDON — Screen Media Films has picked up worldwide rights to Western pic “The Last Rites of Ransom Pride,” following its world preem at the Edinburgh Film Festival.

Pic stars Lizzy Caplan, Cote de Pablo and Peter Dinklage and was picked up at the fest from digital distribution and marketing shingle Horsethief Pictures.

Tiller Russell helms the pic, which sees a young woman in 1910 vow to take home the body of her murdered lover to Texas for burial.

Pic is produced by Duncan Montgomery and Nomadic Pictures.

Screen Media Films plans to release the pic theatrically in the U.S. this fall.

Horsethief was set up last year by Montgomery, Russell and former PayPal exec Jack Selby.
