Company acquires U.S. rights to Craig Zobel's psychological thriller
Eamonn Bowles. “Compliance is a major step forward — an artful, remarkably acted, provocative thriller that will stir up passionate arguments and conversations with audiences. We couldn’t be more pleased to be working with Craig again.” “I’m super happy to come home to Magnolia for this film,” said Zobel. “They consistently release movies I love, and are a pleasure to work with. They’ve been very supportive of me, and I can’t wait to team up again. I’m psyched! Rock and roll!” Magnolia’s SVP of acquisitions, Dori Begley, negotiated the deal with John Sloss and Dana O’Keefe of Cinetic Media. Magnolia recently bought Ry Russo-Young’s “Nobody Walks” and will release the horror anthology “V/H/S” through its genre arm Magnet Releasing.
