Myriad Pictures has acquired all U.S. rights to the drama “The Girl in the Book,” starring Emily VanCamp and Michael Nyqvist.
The movie, written and directed by Marya Cohn, will be launched by Myriad with Freestyle Releasing and Freestyle Digital Media. The 10-city U.S. theatrical and VOD launch is slated for December. The film premiered at this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival.
Myriad is also handling international sales at the American Film Market. Myriad and Freestyle teamed this year on the U.S. releases of “Three Night Stand” and “After the Ball.”
VanCamp plays a powerful book agent’s daughter, who’s trapped in a job as a junior book editor while trying to overcome her own writer’s block. When she’s asked to manage the re-release of a bestselling novel based on incidents in her own life, the book’s author (Nyquist) opens a door to painful memories from her past.
The film was produced by Varient Pictures in association with Busted Buggy Entertainment, with Gina Resnick and Kyle Heller serving as producers. Daniel Cunningham and Courtney Daniels executive produced.
VanCamp starred in the now-cancelled ABC series “Revenge” and played Agent 13/Sharon Carter in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
