FilmNation to Handle International Sales for Hold On To Me

FilmNation to Handle International Sales for Hold On To Me | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it
FilmNation will handle international sales and distribution on Academy Award® winning director James Marsh’s (Man on Wire) Hold On To Me starring Academy Award® Nominee Carey Mulligan (Drive, The Great Gatsby, An Education) and Robert Pattinson (Twilight, Cosmopolis). Hold On To Me is written by Brad Ingelsby (Out of the Furnace) and is an electrifying thriller based on the extraordinary true story of a femme fatale who kidnaps and ransoms the town’s richest man.

FilmNation’s Glen Basner said, “Hold On To Me is a compelling and sexy modern day Bonnie and Clyde story that we’re excited to introduce to buyers at AFM. Carey Mulligan is certain to deliver one of the most memorable femme fatale performances in cinematic history.”

Mulligan plays Nancy, a small town girl who callously leaves her boyfriend Jimmy (Pattinson) behind to chase a modelling career in New York City, breaking his heart in the process. To Nancy’s surprise, New York isn’t impressed by her and at 26, she’s back home waiting tables at the local diner. When she gets word that Jimmy has become a wealthy and successful criminal in Chicago, she tracks him down with a view to winning his affections, only to find crushing rejection. Fuelled by jealousy and an unquenchable thirst for fortune, Nancy finds Danny, a naïve pawn she can seduce and manipulate to her own ends and together they embark on a life of crime. Success comes fast, and leaves faster but nothing and no one will stand in the way of Nancy’s naked, dangerous and deadly ambition.

Screenwriter of 'Hold On To Me' Brad Ingelsby Gives Insight Into the Movie

Screenwriter of 'Hold On To Me' Brad Ingelsby Gives Insight Into the Movie | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Brad Ingelsby gave interview to Go Into The Story, official screenwriting blog of the Black List. Although there’s no Rob mention in this snippet, we do get a great insight into the movie.

Brad Ingelsby is one busy writer with at least six projects in various states of development and production including Hold on to Me and Run All Night ...and The Raid. 

 

Scott:  You’ve got several other projects in the mix, one of them another Black List script, “Hold on to Me.” That’s based on an article written by Hillel Levine and Jimmy Keene. “A ruthless and money‑hungry woman uses a hapless man as a pawn in her criminal schemes.” Could you give some background on how that project evolved?

Brad:  Yeah, sure. That was an article, as you said, that Jimmy and Hillel had written. It was supposed to be published in Playboy magazine though I don’t think it ever was. Alexander Milchan, a producer, gave me the overview of the article that was to be written at that time. It’s a true story. An almost unbelievable true story about a murder committed in Illinois in 1986 by this woman Nancy Rish and her boyfriend, Danny Edwards. We’ve fictionalized the story quite a bit, but in real life Nancy was this blonde beauty and former pageant queen who had aspirations of leaving her small-town life in Kankakee, Illinois. In an effort to escape the doldrums of small-town life she starts dating this guy, Danny, who is beneath her usual standards. But he’s a guy she can shape and mold and so she does. She introduces Danny to drugs, then gets him to deal drugs, then gets him to deal more drugs. And this ascension continues until Nancy gets the fancy estate home and fancy sports car and the big boat she always wanted. And just when she’s finally living the life she always imagined for herself, it all gets abruptly taken away when Danny is pinched and thrown in jail.

So she’s back at this lowly diner where she waitresses and she’s reading this article, I think it was in “Esquire” or “Vanity Fair,” about a young socialite who was kidnapped and buried alive and kept alive for three or four days. And a light goes off in her head. She says to herself, “This is how I can get my life back.” I won’t give away too much more, but it’s a truly bizarre and haunting story of greed and ambition.

James Marsh is going to direct it and Carey Mulligan is going to star. James is one of the smartest people I’ve ever worked with. And one of the kindest and most collaborative. So it’s been a truly great experience. I’m really excited about that one.

Cinema Teaser: James Marsh, 'Hold on to Me' director, talks about Rob and the movie

Cinema Teaser: James Marsh, 'Hold on to Me' director, talks about Rob and the movie | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it
James Marsh tells about plans on filming Hold on to Me, his project with Rob Pattinson and Carey Mulligan:

"It's going well. I think about starting the shoot at the beginning of 2013 if our funds are secure... Hold on to Me will be a dark comedy. My documentaries had humour - at least i hope - whereas my fictional works were heavier. This one will be more high-spirited."
An opus that might change Marsh's carreer since it stars Robert Pattinson. "Robert is interesting. He knows where he wants to go and he wants to work on projects that might help him shape himself, like Cosmopolis. He uses his fame and his energy to help people, like me, make interesting movies. He has a lot of potential. When we met I loved his attitude towards the cinema genre. He liked the script and talked to me about it in an intelligent way. He's going to be a great asset for Hold on to Me and I hope that with him on board, it'll round up tons of teenage girls in the movies theaters to corrupt them. *laughs*"
Finally, Marsh revealed the name of the actor he covets to complete the casting: "I would like to hire an actor from the show Girls, Adam Driver. He's an amazing actor, not very well-known. It would end up forming such a great triangle with Robert and Carey."
