'The Voices'

At long last, Iranian-born director Marjane Satrapi's buzzy Sundance 2014 title "The Voices" has a US distributor.

Lionsgate will handle the genre-bending film about Jerry (Ryan Reynolds), a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for the attention of a female coworker. When their relationship takes a sudden turn, Jerry's talking pets, a sinister cat and benevolent dog, lead him down a fantastical, murderous path. The film costars Anna Kendrick, Jacki Weaver and Gemma Arterton

Sound quirky? You bet. Satrapi directed her much-loved tragicomic autobiography "Persepolis," Oscar-nominated for Best Animated Feature, in 2007. "The Voices" looks to be just as darkly funny and tonally outrageous -- Film.com called it "A loopy, ghastly, funny, morbid and unforgettable 100 minutes."
