Lands digital distribution rights to Elias-helmed thriller

Cinetic Rights Management has acquired digital distribution rights in North America for the psychological thriller “Gut.”

Jason Vail, Nicholas Wilder and Sarah Schoofs are the lead actors in the debut feature of writer-director Elias, who goes by the single moniker.

He and Anna Ganster produced.

“Gut” centers on the deteriorating friendship of two best friends when one gets ahold of an anonymous video that quickly threatens to dismantle everything around them, binding the two friends together with its ugly secret.

“Gut” made its world premiere in Norway at the 60°N Os Intl. Film Festival in April and premiered in Eastern Europe at the 11th annual Transilvania Intl. Film Festival.

Pic will also be screening at the Fantastic Zagreb Film Festival in July and at Louisville’s upcoming Fright Night Film Festival.

Davina Amiri brokered the deal on behalf of producers Anna Ganster and Elias with Kate Hurwitz, Michael Lawson and Luke Marchetti for CRM.
