Tribeca Film, Well Go USA Hook ‘Truth About Fishes’

Distributors team on a late 2013 release for thriller starring Jessica Biel

Tribeca Film and Well Go USA Entertainment have joined forces to pick up North American rights to the Jessica Biel starrer “Emanuel and the Truth about Fishes.”

Biel, Kaya Scodelario, Alfred Molina and Frances O’Connor star in writer-helmer Francesca Gregorini’s pic about an unstable young woman (Scodelario) who becomes obsessed with a neighbor (Biel) who looks just like her dead mother. Film bowed at Sundance earlier this year and has gone on to play a couple of more stops on the festival circuit.

Tribeca Film, the Gotham-based distributor loosely affiliated with the Tribeca Film Festival, and Plano, Tex.-based Well Go target a late 2013 theatrical run to go along with multi-platform on-demand release.

Gregorini, who also wrote and  directed the 2009 pic “Tanner Hall,” and Matthew R. Brady (“Grassroots,” “I Trust You To Kill Me”) produced the film, with the distributed deal pacted by Tribeca Film’s Nick Savva with Kevin Iwashina and Abby Davis (both of Preferred Content) and GKSD Law’s Jonathan Gray, all three negotiating on behalf of the filmmakers.

“Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes” joins a Tribeca slate that includes “The English Teacher” and “Hansel and Gretel Get Baked” and a Well Go roster that includes “And While We Were Here” and “Tai Chi Hero.”
