Currently in charge of foreign sales for the project at the Cannes Film Market, Radiant Films International has debuted the first still from director Zachary Sluser’s The Dritless Area, starring Anton Yelchin, Zooey Deschanel, Frank Langella, John Hawkes, Ciaran Hinds and Alia Shawkat. Check it out in the gallery viewer below.
Adapted from Tom Drury’s novel of the same name (and featuring a script from both Drury and Sluser), The Dritless Area tells the tale of an unconventional romance about death, love and fate. It centers on the enigmatic Stella (Deschanel) and Pierre (Yelchin), a quietly resourceful bartender who returns to his hometown after the death of his parents. When Pierre falls in love with Stella, he is unwittingly drawn into a circle of fate pitting him against the volatile criminal Shane (Hawkes).
The film is being produced by Keith Kjarval, through his Unified Pictures production/finance banner and Aaron L. Gilbert, via Bron Studios, in association with CW Media Finance. Nicole Romano at Anonymous Content manages Sluser and serves as executive producer on the film.
