Fox Searchlight takes US on RPC crime-caper starring Jude Law.

Fox Searchlight has picked up North American rights to RPC’s crime-caper Dom Hemingway, starring Jude Law.

The deal was brokered by Fox Searchlight’s executive vice president of worldwide acquisitions Tony Safford and senior vice president of business affairs Megan O’Brien, with HanWay Films managing director Thorsten Schumacher and COO Jan Spielhoff on behalf of the filmmakers.

Written and directed by Richard Shepard, the crime-comedy stars Law, Richard E. Grant, Demian Bichir and Emilia Clarke in the story of a larger-than-life safecracker who tries to reconnect with his daughter after settling the score that put him behind bars.

Jeremy Thomas produces for RPC. Release is set for 2014.

“We were so attracted to this film, with its rich array of characters and sharp dialogue. Jude Law’s clever and outrageous performance as Dom is completely transformative, unlike anything you have seen him do before,” said Fox Searchlight Pictures presidents Stephen Gilula and Nancy Utley.
