IFC nabs ‘Red Riding Trilogy’

Films are inspired by Yorkshire Ripper case

IFC Films snapped up three British films inspired by the Yorkshire Ripper investigations called “The Red Riding Trilogy.”

Each pic is helmed by a different director: Julian Jarrold’s “1974,” James Marsh’s “1980” and Anand Tucker’s “1983” are self-contained crime thrillers with plot threads that link the three films.

Cast includes Mark Addy, Sean Bean, Paddy Considine, Andrew Garfield and Rebecca Hall.

Trilogy is based on David Peace’s cult novels about a serial killer who stalked the Yorkshire area of England in the 1970s and 1980s. Scripts were penned by Tony Grisoni.

Pics are produced by Michael Winterbottom and Andrew Eaton’s Revolution Films. StudioCanal handled sales.

“Red Riding” aired on Britain’s Channel Four earlier this year. IFC Films plans a theatrical and video on demand release in fall.
