A24 has sealed a seven-figure deal for U.S. rights to Mojave, writer-director William Monahan’s drama that world-premiered at Tribeca last week. The story: Armed with little more than a knife and some vodka, an on-edge Hollywood director (Garrett Hedlund) sets out for the Mojave Desert, where he finds a drifter (Oscar Isaac) brandishing a rifle and claiming to be the devil.
Mark Wahlberg, Louise Bourgoin and Justified alum Walton Goggins also star in Mojave, the second feature helming effort for Monaghan after 2010’s London Boulevard. The filmmaker, who won an Adapted Screenplay Oscar for The Departed, also produced Mojave with William Green, Justine Suzanne Jones and Aaron L. Ginsburg. Andy Horwitz, Nick Quested and Jason Spire are the exec producers. WME Global brokered the deal.
