The Toronto International Film Festival proved to be quite a success for Inescapable: IFC Films announced today that they acquired the U.S. distribution rights to the movie. No word yet on when it will hit theaters here, but we’ll let you know as soon as that information is available.
IFC previously distributed [easyazon-link asin=”B0041KT3NK”]Cairo Time[/easyazon-link], also by Ruba Nadda and starring Alexander Siddig, in 2010.
“We’re all very happy to be working with the wonderfully talented Ruba Nadda again on her followup to ‘Cairo Time,’ which was a great success for us,” said Sundance Selects/IFC Films president Jonathan Sehring. “She has made a bold and exciting film with our friends Alexander Siddig and Marisa Tomei. It’s great to be back in business with Daniel Iron, Christine Vachon and Kirk D’Amico.”
