More COLD IN JULY love from Sundance & a BIG announcement


More great reviews and a BIG announcement litter the latest news from Sundance following the premiere of Cold In July, director Jim Mickle’s film adaptation of the Joe R. Lansdale novel.

First the news, courtesy of Deadline.

IFC is closing a deal for Cold In July, the Jim Mickle-directed drama that stars Dexter‘s Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard, Don Johnson and Vinessa Shaw. I’m hearing the deal is in the vicinity of $2 million for North American rights, with WME Global negotiating.

Reviews keep coming:

“exploitation cinema that kills and caresses in equal measure” (Hitfix)

“thrillingly unpredictable” (Collider)

“unusually absorbing and memorable” (Indiewire)

This July, in commemoration of the movie’s general release, Tachyon delivers the official movie tie-in edition of the original novel, complete with an introduction by director Jim Mickle and an afterword by Joe R. Lansdale, his ownself.
