IFC Films Bringing ‘5 To 7’ To U.S.
The NYC-based distributor has acquired writer-director Victor Levin’s romantic dramedy that premiered at Tribeca in April. IFC Films hasn’t set a U.S. release date for 5 To 7, which stars Anton Yelchin as an aspiring novelist who has an affair with a French diplomat’s wife (Berenice Marlohe). Cultures, worldviews, personal ethics and dietary preferences clash as love deepens. Olivia Thirlby, Lambert Wilson, Frank Langella and Glenn Close co-star in the film produced by Julie Lynn and Bonnie Curtis for Mockingbird Pictures, Sam Englebardt and William Johnson for Demarest Films. Executive producers are David Greathouse, Ruth Mutch and Benjamin and Theresa Castellano-Wood. The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, SVP Acquisitions at Sundance Selects/IFC Films, with CAA and WME Global on behalf of the filmmakers.
