Company to distribute 'The Square'

Apparition has bought North American distribution rights to Nash Edgerton’s noir thriller “The Square.”

Deal has been in the works since before Apparition was named (Daily Variety, April 23, 2009).

Pic is the Oz stuntman’s first feature as a director. Helmer’s brother, actor Joel Edgerton (“Star Wars” prequels) co-stars and co-wrote the script with Matthew Dabner.

Cast also includes David Roberts, Claire van der Bloom and Anthony Hayes. Producer is Louise Smith.

Edgerton’s short “Spider” will screen before each theatrical showing of “The Square,” which opens April 9.
