‘Miss Julie’ secures U.S. Distribution Deal
06 Oct 2014 : Deirdre Molumby
Wrekin Hill Entertainment has bought all U.S. rights to ‘Miss Julie,’ starring Jessica Chastain (‘Zero Dark Thirty’, ‘The Help’), Colin Farrell and Samantha Morton (‘In America’, ‘Minority Report’). The deal comes three weeks after the film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Based on the August Strindberg play, the film was directed by Liv Ullmann and produced by Synnøve Hørsdal, Oliver Dungey and Teun Hilte. The film is being poised for an awards season run as Wrekin Hill will release the film in theatres in December.

'Miss Julie' will also open the Chicago International Film Festival on the 9th of October. The Chicago International Film Festival is the oldest competitive film festival in the United States and celebrates its 50th birthday this year.

The film is set during the course of a midsummer night in Ireland in 1890 with Chastain portraying an unsettled daughter of Anglo-Irish aristocracy, who encourages her father’s valet (Farrell) to seduce her. The valet is already engaged to the cook, played by Morton.

‘Miss Julie’ was filmed entirely on location at Castle Coole, Co. Fermanagh. The film received funding from the Northern Ireland Screen Fund and was part funded by the European Regional Development Fund. Some of the key Irish crew members included costume designer Consolata Boyle (‘The Queen’, ‘Philomena’), sound department Ronan Hill (‘GOT’), Steve Fanagan (‘Albert Nobbs’, ‘Citadel’), Michelle Cuniffe (‘The Guard’, ‘Inside I’m Dancing’) and dialogue editor Peter Blayney ('The Last Days on Mars', 'Ripper Street').

“We are thrilled to be involved with such a captivating film, and we look forward to bringing this incredible film, which features mesmerizing performances by Chastain, Farrell and Morton, to U.S. audiences,” Wrekin Hill COO Rene Cogan said.

The deal was negotiated by Chris Ball and Rene Cogan for Wrekin Hil with CAA on behalf of the filmmakers. Wild Bunch is handling international sales.
