Sundance Selects has acquired North American rights to Kat Candler's "Hellion," a month after its world premiere at Sundance.
"Hellion" will be released later this year theatrically and on VOD. The film stars Aaron Paul, Juliette Lewis and Josh Wiggins (pictured above) and was produced by Kelly Williams and Jonathan Duffy.
Variety's Peter Debruge said in his review that Wiggins had delivered "a stunning breakthrough performance."
"Hellion" was executive produced by Jeff Nichols, Sarah Green, Janice Beard, Tanner Beard, Suzanne Weinert, and co-executive produced by Aaron Paul. The film features a soundtrack with songs from Metallica, Slayer and The Sword.
The deal for the film was negotiated by Arianna Bocco for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers.
Sundance Selects is a sister label to IFC Films and IFC Midnight, and is owned and operated by AMC Networks Inc.
