The Orchard Acquires Sundance Drama ‘Christine’ Starring Rebecca Hall

The Orchard has acquired North American distribution rights to “Christine,” the Sundance drama starring Rebecca Hall as a disturbed broadcast journalist.

The film, directed by Antonio Campos, received a warm reception at Sundance when it premiered on Jan. 23, particularly for the lead performance by Hall. It’s based on the 1974 story of Florida anchor Christine Chubbuck.

The movie is written and produced by Craig Shilowich, and Melody C. Roscher served as another producer. Executive producers include Sean Durkin, Josh Mond, Robert Halmi, Jr. and Jim Reeve.

The Orchard, a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment, also bought the coming-of-age dramedy “The Hunt for Wilderpeople” and the autism documentary “Life, Animated” out of Sundance.

The deal was negotiated by UTA Independent Film Group and WME.
