“A Most Violent Year” is set in New York City during the winter of 1981 — one of the most violent years in the city’s history. The film follows the lives of an immigrant family trying to expand their business and capitalize on opportunities amid violence, decay and corruption.
A24 is planning for a fourth-quarter release. Participant Media and Image Nation Abu Dhabi are co-financing “A Most Violent Year,” which is produced by Before The Door’s Neal Dodson and Washington Square Films’ Anna Gerb, along with Chandor.
FilmNation Entertainment will handle international sales, which will commence at the upcoming European Film Market in Berlin.
Participant’s Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King, Joshua Blum, Kerry Orent, and Glen Basner of FilmNation Entertainment are exec producing.
