Cinedigm has acquired all North American distribution rights to Olivia Wilde’s psychological drama “Meadowland” and set an awards season theatrical release in October.

The film, which debuted at Tribeca in April, also stars Luke Wilson, Elisabeth Moss, Giovanni Ribisi, Ty Simpkins and John Leguizamo. Wilde and Wilson play a couple dealing with their son’s disappearance with Wilson portraying a New York City policeman.

“Meadowland” marks the directorial debut of cinematographer Reed Morano, who helmed from a script by Chris Rossi. Wilde serves as a producer, as she has in several of her previous projects including “Drinking Buddies,” “Sun City Picture House” and “Body Team 12.”

The producing team includes Aaron L. Gilbert of Bron Studios, along with Margot Hand and Matt Tauber. Jennifer Levine, Jason Cloth of CW Media Finance, Alex Garcia, Santiago Garcia Galvan, Marla Rand, Scott Paterson and Lauren Selig are the executive producers.

The deal was negotiated by Cinedigm’s Kristin Harris with WME Global and Gersh representing the filmmakers.

“‘Meadowland’ is precisely the sort of compelling, filmmaker-driven and performance-driven work that makes independent film so exciting,” said Cinedigm’s Yolanda Macias, exec VP of acquisitions. “Wilde is electrifying and Wilson is heartbreaking in Morano’s remarkable debut. It is wonderful to be working with such a deeply talented team.”

K5 is handling the film’s international sales.
