IFC Midnight has acquired U.S. rights to Andrew Droz Palermo’s supernatural mystery “One and Two,” starring Kiernan Shipka (“Mad Men”), Timothee Chalamet, Grant Bowler and Elizabeth Reaser.
The film was produced by Kim Sherman, Matthew Perniciaro and Michael Sherman of Bow and Arrow Entertainment and Protagonist Pictures. The film had its world premiere in the Generation program at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival, followed by its U.S. premiere at the SXSW Film Festival.
Palermo directed “One and Two” from a script he co-wrote with Neima Shahdadi. The story centers on a mysterious farmhouse where a family of four maintains an isolated existence with two children cursed with supernatural powers.
The deal was negotiated with WME Global on behalf of the filmmakers. Protagonist Pictures is handling international sales at Cannes.
