Ramin Bahrani’s much fancied 99 Homes will not compete in this year’s awards season as it emerged that Broad Green Pictures has acquired all US rights and will distribute theatrically in spring 2015.
Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon star in the Faustian drama in which a cash-strapped construction worker enters into the confidence of an unscrupulous property developer.
99 Homes premiered at Venice and also played at Telluride and Toronto. The cast includes Laura Dern and Noah Lomax.
Hyde Park-Image Nation financed 99 Homes and Hyde Park’s Ashok Amritraj produced with Bahrani, Kevin Turen and Justin Nappi.
Amritraj, CAA and Broad Green CEO Gabriel Hammond brokered the deal.
Hyde Park International handles sales outside the US.
