EXCLUSIVE: Sony Pictures Classics is closing a deal for multiple territories on Kill Your Darlings, the John Krokidas-directed drama that stars Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan, Ben Foster, Michael C. Hall, Jack Huston and last year’s Sundance festival darling, Elizabeth Olsen. Scripted by Austin Bunn and Krokidas, the drama is an untold story of murder that brought together a young Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and William Burroughs at Columbia University in 1944, providing the spark that led to the birth of the Beat generation. UTA and Cassian Elwes brokered the deal.
The film is a coproduction between Benaroya Pictures and Killer Films. Michael Benaroya, Christine Vachon and Rose Ganguzza are the producers.
