Dimension acquires thriller ‘Compulsion’

Pic, shooting in Canada, stars Heather Graham, Carrie-Anne Moss

Dimension Films has acquired U.S. distribution rights to psychological thriller “Compulsion” starring Heather Graham and Carrie-Anne Moss.

Helmer Egidio Coccimiglio is currently shooting the pic in Ontario, Canada.

Based on the South Korean film “301, 302,” “Compulsion” centers on two neighbors dealing with obsessions that have taken over each of their lives. One woman is vivacious and calculating, consumed with such a large desire for validation that she imagines herself a star in a made-up cooking show. The other woman, a former child star, is a reclusive anorexic. Their relationship to one another and to food eventually boils over.

Gary Howsam and Bill Marks are producing from a script by Floyd Byars. Exec producers include Tajj Media’s Anders Palm and Jeff Sackman.

Tajj is handling distribution rights for the pic with Moonstone Entertainment and Etchie Stroh handling foreign.
