Gravitas Ventures has acquired North American rights to Bleeding Heart, a thriller written and directed by Diane Bell that stars Jessica Biel and Zosia Mamet. It is coming off its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. The plan is to release the pic on demand November 3 followed by a theatrical release December 11.
The story centers on May (Biel), a yoga instructor who finds herself behaving in ways she’d never have imagined herself, in an effort to protect her newly discovered sister, Shiva (Mamet), from a less-than-savory boyfriend. Kate Burton, Edi Gathegi and Joe Anderson co-star. Super Crispy’s Jonathan Schwartz, Andrea Sperling and Greg Ammon produced, and Audrey and Zygi Wilf and Dan Halsted executive produced.
The deal was negotiated by Gravitas founder and CEO Nolan Gallagher and ICM Partners and attorney Lawrence Kopeikin of Morris Yorn on behalf of the filmmakers.
