The Eclipse
Having received its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Friday - Conor McPherson's ‘The Eclipse’, starring Aidan Quinn and Ciaran Hinds is said to be close to a sales deal with sales agent Submarine Entertainment. Short film ‘The Confession’ has also been selected to broadcast on the festival’s web channel.

‘The Eclipse’, directed and written by McPherson and produced by Robert Walpole at Treasure Entertainment, is a supernatural drama centering on a widowed man (Hinds) and the relationship he develops with a horror novelist (Iben Hjejle). Quinn plays an American writer who is also trying to win the novelist’s affections.

The Hollywood Reporter states that a sales arrangement for the film would be the first major sale from a Tribeca screening since the Weinstein Co. purchased ‘Transamerica’, starring Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives) and featuring Irish actress Fionnula Flanagan in 2005.

In other Tribeca news, Thomas Heffernan’s short film ‘The Confession’ is one of the four shorts (selected from 45 films screening at the festival) to air on the Tribeca web channel for two weeks, running in parallel with the festival itself.
