In March, Sundance Selects acquired North American and Latin American rights to Alexandre Moors’ debut feature Blue Caprice, which made its world premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival

The film, with a screenplay by R.F.I. Porto, was co-produced by Ron Simons (SimonSays Entertainment), alongside Isen Robbins, Aimee Schoof, Stephen Tedeschi, Brian O’Carroll, Kim Jackson and Will Rowbotham

It opened Film Society of Lincoln Center and MOMA’s 2013 New Directors/New Films Festival, and really hasn't screened much at all since it left Sundance. 

Starring Isaiah Washington, Tequan Richmond, Joey Lauren Adams, Tim Blake Nelson and Leo Fitzpatrick, Blue Caprice, based on the story of the real-life Beltway sniper attacks of 2002, perpetrated by John Allen Muhammad, and Lee Boyd Malvo, is described as a haunting psychological thriller about an abandoned boy (Richmond) lured to America into the shadows of a dangerous father figure (Washington), and their distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across the USA.

Sundance Selects will release the film on September 13th, although no specifics on cities yet. I'd guess a limited theatrical in a handful of major markets, accompanied by a VOD release for the rest of the country, which isn't out of the ordinary for Sundance Selects.

The MPAA has officially marked the film with an expected 'R' rating for "disturbing violent content, language and brief drug use." I'd be somewhat surprised if it was anything but, given the subject matter it tackles, as we know it. Although, from what I've been told, it's less about the violent bloodbath that was the real-life episode that inspired the film. Its focus is more on the relationship between John Allen and Lee Boyd, and less about the act that they have become known.

Still no release trailer yet, although it's certainly highly-anticipated.

Stay tuned,,,
