Rudderless Sundance

Paramount and Samuel Goldwyn have acquired North America rights to William H. Macy’s musical drama  “Rudderless,” the closing night film at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Samuel Goldwyn Films will handle U.S. theatrical distribution day-and-date with Paramount’s VOD release. Paramount will also handle other U.S. ancillary platforms and all distribution in Canada, the UK, Russia and certain territories in Asia.

“Rudderless” stars Macy, Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin, Selena Gomez, Laurence Fishburne and Felicity Huffman.

Macy made his feature directorial debut, helming from a script by Casey Twenter and Jeff Robison about a grieving father (Crudup) who finds salvation from the discovery of his deceased son’s demo tapes and lyrics.

Producers are Keith Kjarval of Unified Pictures and Brad Greiner. WME Global is representing the rights. Radiant International is selling international rights.
