On Thursday, ahead of its premiere at Sundance, HBO Films took A24’s Native Son directed by Rashid Johnson in an eight-figure deal.

Share follows 16-year-old Mandy (Rhianne Barreto), who discovers a disturbing video from a night she doesn’t remember. She then tries to figure out the events that occurred and how to navigate the escalating fallout. Share made its world premiere on Friday at Sundance in the US Dramatic Competition section.

Bianco’s original short for Share won prizes at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and SXSW Film Festival. Bianco, who wrote the screenplay, makes her feature filmmaking debut with Share. Carly Hugo, Tyler Byrne, and Matt Parker produced Share. In addition to Barreto, Charlie Plummer, Poorna Jagannathan, J.C. MacKenzie, Nicholas Galitzine, Lovie Simone and Danny Mastrogiorgio also star.

The latest deal for Share continues A24 and HBO’s longstanding collaboration, which includes such projects as 2 Dope Queens, and the upcoming drama series Euphoria.
