Focus Features has secured a US awards season 2020 release slot for Participant Media’s Untitled Tom McCarthy Project starring Matt Damon.
The thriller will open theatrically on November 6 and expand wide on both November 13 and November 20, 2020.
Damon will play Bill, and American oil-rig roughneck from Oklahoma, who travels to Marseille in France to visit his estranged daughter who is in prison for a murder she claims she did not commit.
Confronted with language barriers, cultural differences, and a complicated legal system, Bill makes it his personal mission to exonerate his daughter. Abigail Breslin and Camille Cottin also star.
Thomas Bidegain, Noé Debré, McCarthy, and Marcus Hinchey wrote the screenplay. Steve Golin, McCarthy, Jonathan King, and Liza Chasin serve as producers.
