Red Lights

In today's Sundance news, Millennium Entertainment has signed a deal for the U.S. distribution rights to "Red Lights," the new thriller from "Buried" director Rodrigo Cortés that premiered at the festival last Friday.

Cillian Murphy, Sigourney Weaver and Elizabeth Olsen star as a team of paranormal skeptics out to debunk a famous telekinetic played by Robert De Niro.

Just two days ago, we wrote that "Red Lights" hadn't yet been snapped up by one of the many hungry buyers at Sundance, receiving a lackluster response at its premiere.  "The slightly ragged movie," TOH's Anne Thompson wrote, "delivers genuine thrills and strong performances from the two leads ... and could be edited into submission."  At the Eccles Theater premiere of "Red Lights" were Bob and Harvey Weinstein and David Glasser, Summit's Erik Feig and Michael Schaefer, IFC's Jonathan Sehring, Tony Safford of Fox Searchlight, Sony Pictures Classics' Michael Barker, Howard Cohen and Eric D'Arbeloff of Roadside Attractions and former Film District execs Bob and Jeanne Berney.

Last week at Sundance, Millennium picked up the romantic dramedy "A Little Bit of Heaven," starring Kate Hudson and Gael Garcia Bernal.  Unlike "Heaven," for which Millennium is planning a multi-platform release, "Red Nights" will be deployed under a more a standard theatrical distribution plan.
