2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Untitled Drake Doremus Drama

I’m betting that Drake Doremus’s currently untitled drama will make it three for three at Sundance with Douchebag (Sundance ’10), Grand Jury Prize winning Like Crazy (Sundance ’11) or four for four in Park City when you include his debut film, the Slamdance selected Spooner. Once again teaming with Felicity Jones, this also stars Guy Pearce, Kyle MacLachlan, Amy Ryan and Alexandra Wentworth, filming on his latest began in August of 2011 – so with the exception of no title, there won’t be last minute preparations on this one and surely bidding war preparations might already be in the works. 

Gist: This is quoted as being a “tense story about an inappropriate relationship between a young student, an exchange student and a school teacher.”

Production Co./Producers: Indian Paintbrush’s Steven M. Rales and Mark Roybal, Crispy Films’ Jonathan Schwartz and Andrea Sperling (Smashed, Nobody Walks)

Prediction: Premieres Program

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
