'Ain't Them Bodies Saints'

IFC has sealed a deal for U.S. rights to David Lowery's Sundance favorite "Ain't Them Bodies Saints." The acquisition reportedly came after a battle involving the company and three other distributors that lasted through the night of January 24 and into the morning of the 25th.

The Western-neo-noir hybrid stars Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck and Ben Foster, and has been receiving rave reviews since its premiere in Park City on January 20. The film is penned by Lowery, and follows an outlaw who must travel across Texas to reunite with his wife and the daughter he's never met. Stay tuned for our video interview with the rising Texas writer-director; the film is likely to win a prize or two at Saturday's Sundance Awards ceremony. 

Deadline is reporting that the acquisition is just over $1 million.
