AFM: Ethan Hawke’s ‘Regression’ Gets U.S. Distribution from Weinsteins

Shooting set for the spring

Harvey and Bob Weinstein have acquired U.S. rights to Ethan Hawke starrer “Regression,” set to start shooting in the spring.

FilmNation Entertainment is selling English-language thriller “Regression” at the American Film Market for all territories outside the U.S. and Spain. CAA reps domestic rights.

Alejandro Amenabar will direct from his own screenplay about a man who is accused of sexually abusing his daughter but has no memory of it, and may be part of a nationwide conspiracy. “Regression” will be produced by his longtime partner Fernando Bovaira for his company MOD and by Amenabar’s own Himenoptero banner.

Hawke starred recently in “The Purge,” “Before Midnight” and “The Getaway.” Amenabar’s credits include “The Sea Inside,” which won the foreign-language film Oscar in 2004.

Variety first reported on Oct. 30 that Hawke had come onboard.

The Weinsteins plan to release “Regression” under the new TWC-Dimension label in 2015. Amenabar’s “The Others” was released by Dimension and grossed more than $200 million worldwide.

“’Regression’ means for me coming back to my passion, genre filmmaking, and it’s a great pleasure to have on board Bob and Harvey, who so passionately supported ‘The Others,'” Amenabar said.

Other TWC-Dimension titles announced so far are “Paddington Bear,” “Murder Mystery” and “Passengers.” The Weinsteins are touting the new label combining the core prestige sensibilities of a TWC film with the mainstream appeal of a Dimension film.
