Millennium gets rights to ‘Rampart’

Snags deal after debut at Toronto Film Festival

Millennium Entertainment has acquired U.S. rights to Oren Moverman’s LAPD cop thriller “Rampart,” following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 10.

Millennium announced it had closed the deal Friday evening. The deal is for $2 million, plus performance bonuses.

Millenium said it will release the film theatrically this year with newly minted Millenium Films’ chief Mark Gill consulting.

Moverman and James Ellroy wrote the screenplay. Cast that includes Woody Harrelson, Ben Foster, Robin Wright, Sigourney Weaver, Steve Buscemi, Anne Heche, Cynthia Nixon, Ice Cube, Brie Larson, and Ned Beatty.

Producers are Lawrence Inglee of Lightstream Pictures, Ben Foster, Clark Peterson and Ken Kao of Waypoint Entertainment. Paul Currie, Michael DeFranco, Garrett Kelleher and Lila Yacoub are exec producers.

Story centers on Harrelson’s charcter — a Vietnam vet and a Rampart Precinct cop. When he gets caught on tape beating a suspect, he finds himself in a personal and emotional downward spiral as the consequences of his past sins and his refusal to change his ways in light of a department-wide corruption scandal seal his fate.

Sierra/Affinity is representing the international rights to the film, which have been sold to a majority of territories around the globe.

Moverman previously co-wrote and directed “The Messenger,” also starring Harrelson.

Vincent Scordino negotiated the deal on behalf of Millennium Entertainment. Alexis Garcia negotiated on behalf of WME Global.
