Liam Hemsworth’s ‘Cut Bank’ Gets U.S. Distribution

A24 and DirecTV have acquired U.S. rights to Liam Hemsworth’s thriller “Cut Bank” two months after its premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival.

“Cut Bank” will screen Sept. 10 at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival in the Contemporary World Cinema program. A24 plans a 2015 release in collaboration with DirecTV.

John Malkovich, Billy Bob Thornton, Bruce Dern, Teresa Palmer, Michael Stuhlbarg and Oliver Platt also star. Matt Shakman directed from Roberto Patino’s screenplay about an athlete-turned-auto mechanic who dreams of getting out of Cut Bank, Montana and discovers a murder.

Armie Hammer had initially been attached to play the role. Hemsworth came on board just before shooting started last year in Edmonton.

Producers are Laura Rister, Edward Zwick, Mickey Barold, Mark Manuel, Ted O’Neal and Dan Cohen. Kilburn Media financed along with the Edmonton Economic Development Corp.
