A24 acquired North American rights to Steven Knight’s Locke, the first deal on the ground here at Toronto. The IM Global film stars Tom Hardy. It played Venice before a buyer’s screening in Toronto yesterday. Word last night was A24 would make the deal, but I could not confirm it. Knight wrote the script as well, about a man struggling to save his personal and professional life, all filmed over the course of one car ride.
