IFC Films lands U.S. on ‘Inescapable’

Ruba Nadda-helmed thriller bowed at Toronto Film Festival

IFC Films has acquired U.S. distribution rights to writer-director Ruba Nadda’s thriller “Inescapable” from Myriad Pictures.

Pic, which stars Alexander Siddig, Joshua Jackson and Marisa Tomei, premiered as a gala presentation at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

Daniel Iron and Lance Samuels produced “Inescapable,” while Killer FilmsChristine Vachon, Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico and Alliance Films’ Mark Slone exec produced. Alliance Films is distributing the pic in Canada.

Story follows a Syrian expatriate (Siddig) whose journalist daughter goes missing in Damascus. He returns to his homeland to try to find her and calls on a former love (Tomei), and an embassy official (Jackson) to help him.

“I’m excited and honored to be back with IFC Films and to bring my movie to audiences in the U.S.,” said Nadda. “This is a project I’ve been working on for the past six years and I’m so happy for the confidence that IFC Films has shown in it.”

IFC Films previously released Nadda’s 2010 film “Cairo Time,” which also starred Siddig.

“We’re all very happy to be working with the wonderfully talented Ruba Nadda again on her followup to ‘Cairo Time,’ which was a great success for us,” said Sundance Selects/IFC Films prexy Jonathan Sehring. “She has made a bold and exciting film with our friends Alexander Siddig and Marisa Tomei. It’s great to be back in business with Daniel Iron, Christine Vachon and Kirk D’Amico.”

Deal was negotiated by D’Amico and The Gersh Agency, who were co-repping the pic’s U.S. rights, and Arianna Bocco for Sundance Selects/IFC Films. Myriad Pictures is handling the film internationally.
