We revealed the project and cast last fall, and now Arclight Films is bringing to the Berlin Market The Confirmation, which stars Clive Owen, Maria Bello, St Vincent‘s Jaeden Lieberher, Patton Oswalt and Matthew Modine, with Nebraska scribe Bob Nelson directing his script. Pic was funded and produced in association with Great Point Media. The Alexander Payne-directed Nebraska was Nelson’s first produced movie credit, and it got six Oscar noms including Best Picture. Todd Hoffman is producing with Nelson. Owen plays a carpenter whose luck seems to be picking up when he’s offered a job of a lifetime, but his toolbox gets stolen and he must get it back, and he’s spending the weekend with his estranged eight-year-old son. “Nelson has a unique ability to grab at a viewer’s heartstrings and really allow people to feel a connection to the story,” said Arclight’s Guy Hamilton. “His screenplays deal with issues that all people can identify with – family, luck, the dichotomy between hard times and all with the right amount of humor to make these themes accessible to global audiences.” Pic’s well underway and Arclight has footage to show. CAA and WME are brokering North American rights.
