2014 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Lawrence Michael Levine’s Wild Canaries

He managed to put together the Indie actress all-star team of Sophia Takal, Amy Seimetz, Kate Lyn Sheil and Lena Dunham (forgive the pun) all under one “roof” for Gabi on the Roof in July back in 2010, and in 2013, Lawrence Michael Levine packaged the himself, his wife (Takal), Alia Shawkat, Annie Parisse, Jason Ritter, Kevin Corrigan, Marylouise Burke, Lindsay Burdge and Eleonore Hendricks in a BKLYN whodunit, Wild Canaries. Production concluded in May of this year, and was presented among the half dozen titles at the U.S in Progress, leaving plenty of time for this cinematic hipster game of Clue to be ready in time for Park City.

Gist: A Brooklyn couple suspects foul play when their rent controlled neighbor suddenly drops dead.

Production Co./Producers: Takal, Kim Sherman (A Teacher), E. McCabe Walsh (Andrew Renzi’s Karaoke!)

Prediction: NEXT section appears to be just right – with plenty of interest coming from the SXSW folks.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
