Andrea Riseborough’s ‘Nancy’ Sells to Samuel Goldwyn Films



Sundance

Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired the North American rights to Andrea Riseborough’s “Nancy,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last month.
“Nancy” is set to get a traditional theatrical release later this year. It follows a woman who becomes convinced that she was kidnapped as a child — and when she encounters a couple whose daughter went missing 30 years ago, her lines of reality begin to disappear.
Steve Buscemi, J. Smith-Cameron, Ann Dowd and John Leguizamo round out the cast. Christina Choe wrote and directed. Producers include Amy Lo of Mental Pictures, Michelle Cameron, and Riseborough under her banner Mothersucker.

The deal was negotiated by Peter Goldwyn, president of Samuel Goldwyn Films, and Endeavor Content and Anita Surendran of Gray Krauss Sandler Des Rochers LLP on behalf of the filmmakers. Cercamon is handling international sales.

Riseborough most recently starred on the series “Black Mirror” and “Waco,” as well as Sundance hit “Burden.” Her next projects include the short “Actress” and the feature film “Secrets from the Russian Tea Room.”
Choe’s other credits include shorts “I am John Wayne,” “The Queen,” “Flow” and “The Cross.”
