Comic thriller won new director prize at Tribeca
Entertainment One is selling the film in Cannes.
“Whitiewash” premiered last month at the Tribeca Film Festival, where it won the best new narrative director award. Oscilloscope will release the film theatrically and across all digital platforms.
Haden Church plays a down-on-his-luck and recently unemployed plow operator in a small, snowy Canadian town. When he accidentally kills a man in the midst of a rampage with his snowplow, he must deal with the consequences.
The deal was negotiated by David Laub and Dan Berger of Oscilloscope with Charlotte Mickie of Entertainment One on behalf of the filmmakers.
