Bleecker Street has closed its second acquisition of Sundance, acquiring North American rights to Debra Granik’s Winter’s Bone follow-up Leave No Trace.
Granik and Anne Rosellini adapted the Premieres selection from Peter Rock’s novel My Abandonment. The drama stars Ben Foster and newcomer Harcourt McKenzie as a father and daughter living off the grid in the forests of Portland, Oregon, who embark on a journey back to their wilderness homeland when both are placed into social services.
Bron and Topic Studios backed the film, which Anne Harrison, Linda Reisman and Anne Rosellini produced.
Bleecker Street’s Kent Sanderson and Avy Eschenasy brokered the deal with Endeavor Content on behalf of the filmmakers.
Earlier in the festival Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions took all international rights to Leave No Trace excluding France.
Bleecker Street and 30WEST paid mid-seven figures for Wash Westmoreland’s Colette starring Keira Knightley.
