IFC Films Acquires Kristen Stewart-Michelle Williams Drama ‘Certain Women’

IFC Films has acquired U.S. rights to Kelly Reichardt’s “Certain Women,” the company announced Wednesday.

Kristen Stewart, Michelle Williams and Laura Dern star in the drama based on short stories written by Maile Meloy, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January. The film is slated for a late 2016 theatrical release.

Neil Kopp, Vincent Savino and Anish Savjani of filmscience produced the film, alongside executive producers Todd Haynes and Larry Fessenden.

“The entire team at IFC Films have long been fans of Kelly and are thrilled to finally be working with her – she is a master at her craft and one of the most distinct storytellers working in cinema today,” Sundance Selects/IFC Films president Jonathan Sehring said in a release. “Along with her amazing cast of Kristen Stewart, Laura Dern, Lily Gladstone and Michelle Williams, Kelly has created another treasure that confirms her as one of our great American filmmakers. We can’t wait to bring it to the theaters for audiences to see.”

“We’re thrilled to be working with IFC Films,” the filmmakers said in a statement. “Their enthusiasm for the film was amazing, and we very much look forward to collaborating with their team on its release this year.”

Arianna Bocco, Sundance Selects/IFC Film’s SVP of acquisitions, negotiated the deal with UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers. Sony’s Stage 6 Films nabbed worldwide rights to the film before production began.
