Strand Releasing gets ‘Crazy’

Company acquires U.S. rights to noir drama

Strand Releasing has acquired U.S. rights to Adam Sherman’s contempo noir drama “Crazy Eyes,” starring Lukas Haas and Madeline Zima.

The film, which will have its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival next week, follows a young man whose obsession for a girl he calls Crazy Eyes drives him to the brink — as his hard partying lifestyle conflict with his familial responsibilities.

Jake Busey, Ray Wise and Tania Raymonde round out the cast. The film was produced by Hagai Shaham.

Strand plans an early summer release. “Crazy Eyes” marks the second film by Sherman to be distributed by Strand, which handled his “Happiness Runs” in 2009.

Sherman’s other directorial credits include “Dead Doll.” He produced “Wristcutters: A Love Story,” which screened at Sundance and was distributed by Lionsgate.

Haas recently starred in “Contraband” and Zima was in “Breaking the Girl.”
