EXCLUSIVE: U.S. label Rock Salt Releasing has taken world sales for psychological thriller Marionette, which it will screen at the upcoming EFM.
The film tells the story of a therapist who loses her grip on reality when a ten-year-old boy claims he can control her future. Check out the first trailer.
Dutch director Elbert van Strien (Two Eyes Staring) is behind the film, which stars Thekla Reuten (Red Sparrow), Peter Mullan (Children Of Men), Elijah Wolf (T2 Trainspotting), Rebecca Front (Transformers: The Last Knight), and Bill Paterson (The Witches).
Shot in Scotland, the film is produced by Accento Films, Bosbros, Samsa Film and Black Camel Pictures. Van Strien wrote with Ben Hopkins.
“I immediately recognized its commercial appeal, so it’s no surprise we’re in bidding wars for key territories in Europe and throughout Asia. I’m excited for audiences to take this ride – Marionette pulls you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat,” said Daisy Hamilton of TriCoast offshoot Rock Salt.
