Sony Has Fatal Attraction for Egoyan’s ‘Chloe’

I would have bet the farm on the film finding a distributor fairly soon after the fest and was thinking SPC was going to grab the title for a certain art-house theater segment of the population.

While I was amused by Atom Egoyan’s purposely cheeky Chloe, critics at the Toronto Int. Film Festival beat this film to a pulp. I would have bet the farm on the film finding a distributor fairly soon after the fest and was thinking SPC was going to grab the title for a certain art-house theater segment of the population. I would have been sort of right as, Variety reports that Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group has picked up U.S. rights. So this is either going to SPC or might actually be tossed over to Apparition.

Scripted by Erin Cressida Wilson and based on Anne Fontaine’s 2003 film Nathalie, Catherine (Julianne Moore), a successful doctor, suspects her husband David (Liam Neeson), a handsome music professor, is cheating on her. To lay her suspicions and fears to rest, she hires an irresistible young woman, Chloe (Amanda Seyfried), to test David’s fidelity. Chloe’s torrid tales of her encounters with David lead Catherine on a journey of sexual and sensual re-discovery. But by opening the door to temptation, she puts her family in great danger.

SPC distributed Egoyan’s Adoration in May of this year, we can expect a repeat scenario with this pic.
