IFC Films taking ‘Breaking the Girls’

Myriad Pictures selling Babbit-directed thriller in Toronto

IFC Films has acquired U.S. distribution rights to director Jamie Babbit’s thriller “Breaking the Girls” from Myriad Pictures and will give the pic a limited theatrical run stateside. Myriad is selling the film in Toronto this week.

Written by Mark Distefano and “American Psycho” scribe Guinevere Turner, “Breaking the Girls” stars Madeline Zima (“Californication”), Agnes Bruckner and Shawn Ashmore (“X-Men: The Last Stand”). John Stockwell co-stars alongside Kate Levering and Shanna Collins.

Pic was produced by Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico (“Margin Call”) and Andrea Sperling (“Like Crazy”). “Wedding Crashers” producers Peter Abrams and Robert Levy of Tapestry Films exec produced.

Bruckner plays a college student who, when slandered by a hostile classmate, is befriended by a manipulative young woman (Zima) who proposes the perfect, untraceable crime — to kill each other’s archenemies. When Zima’s character actually goes through with it, protag finds herself being framed for murder. 

“Myriad is thrilled to continue its long and positive relationship with IFC Films on this project,” said Myriad CEO D’Amico. “Jamie Babbit and I are looking forward to working with the excellent team at IFC to make this film available to many of Jamie’s admirers who have been waiting to see this film for some time. We loved working with our extraordinary cast and we are blessed with the result of a very provocative and unique film.”

Deal was negotiated by D’Amico and Arianna Bocco of Sundance Selects/IFC Films.
