2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Calvin Reeder’s The Rambler

All signs are pointing to another Park City showing for Calvin Reeder’s latest, as the hard to classify filmmaker is a regular at the fest having premiered his debut feature film, The Oregonian (Sundance ’11 – here’s our interview with him) and before that, short films Little Farm (Sundance ’07), and The Rambler (Sundance ’08) which is actually the basis for his sophomore project. We haven’t heard anything new on The Rambler since principal photography was announced/began back in Roswell, New Mexico in April, which means that the project which stars Dermot Mulroney (official still above), Lindsay Pulsipher (who reprises the role she had in the short) and Natasha Lyonne has had loads of time to be readied in post-production.

Gist: After being released from prison, a man known as The Rambler (Mulroney) stumbles upon a strange mystery as he attempts a dangerous journey through treacherous back roads and small towns en route to reconnecting with his long lost brother.

Production Co./Producers: XYZ Films’ Nate Bolotin, Brooklyn Reptyle Productions’ Christo Dimassis and Roger M. Mayer, Benaroya Pictures’ James Lejsek and Clayton Young

Prediction: Park City at Midnight

U.S. Distributor: Anchor Bay Films
