A24 bought U.S. rights to Room, an adaptation of the Emma Donoghue novel that has Brie Larson set to star and Lenny Abrahamson directing with production to begin this fall. People have been buzzing about this one. It revolves around the love between a mother and her 5-year-old child, who live together in a single room. Over the course of his fifth birthday, it becomes apparent they are not in that room by choice; she has been imprisoned there, and they plot their escape. Ed Guiney will produce and Andrew Love is exec producing for Element Pictures and Tessa Ross, Sue Bruce Smith and Rose Garnett are exec producing for Film4, which developed it with the Irish Film Board. UTA repped by the film and FilmNation is selling international rights.
