2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: M. Blash’s The Wait

I had M. Blash’s The Wait on my predictions list last year. A fitting title for the shot in Oregon, sophomore feature that wrapped production in 2010. Word is, it is clearly finished as footage was shown at the AFM last month. Jena Malone, Chloë Sevigny, Luke Grimes and Devon Gearhart star, while on the tech side we find Cinematographer Kasper Tuxen (3 Backyards), Production Designer Ryan Smith (For Ellen), and Editors Jessica Brunetto (Capitalism: A Love Story), Lance Edmands (director of Bluebird) and Justin Kelly.

Gist: Two sisters decide to keep their deceased mother in their home after being informed that she will come back to life.

Production Co./Producers: Ryan Crisman, Neil Kopp (Meek’s Cutoff) and David Guy Levy

Prediction: Park City at Midnight

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
