Brad Anderson's The Dagon to star Frank Grillo, heads to Cannes with Independent Entertainment handling international sales

Independent Entertainment will launch sales on Brad Anderson’s upcoming thriller THE DAGON at this year’s Marché du Film with CAA and Independent co-representing North American rights.

THE DAGON sees award-winning director Anderson (Session 9, The Machinist, Beirut) reunite with producers Neal Edelstein (Mulholland Drive, The Ring) and Mike Macari (Alone, The Ring), following 2019’s Fractured, with an original screenplay written by Peter Mattei (Outsiders).

Frank Grillo (Kingdom, Copshop! and Lamborghini) takes the lead role of Jack, a father controlling his family’s isolated rural life. When his eldest daughter comes of age, the family must confront the Dagon - the terrifying, deadly creatures that surround them every night.

The Pacific Northwest set project will shoot in Autumn 2022.

Macari and Edelstein have worked together since they partnered for the American version of The Ring. They are fiercely committed to making films and supporting directors to fulfill their vision.

Marc Hofstatter, Head of Acquisitions for Independent Entertainment comments:

’THE DAGON is one of those rare scripts that delivers a story and characters you completely invest in, only to totally pull the rug from under you. In Frank Grillo the team have found the perfect man for our empathetic but enigmatic lead, and Brad Anderson has consistently delivered outstanding work in this genre and beyond.  We couldn’t be more excited to introduce his vision for THE DAGON to our buyers.

Producers Neal Edelstein and Mike Macari comment:

THE DAGON is the movie we’ve been looking to find and make for years. Reuniting with Brad and having Frank play the lead gives us the opportunity to make the best version of this riveting thriller.

Brad Anderson comments:

Frank Grillo is one of the most compelling and dynamic actors out there and I have been wanting to work with him for ages. THE DAGON is tailor made for his huge talents and I couldn’t be happier to have him on board.

Collaborating with Neal and Mike on our film FRACTURED was one of my most exciting creative experiences and I'm thrilled to be doing it again.

These days especially I think we need more movies like THE DAGON -  elevated dark stories that can  transport you, horrify you, move you and, like all great fairy tales, work as both cautionary tales and beacons of hope.

 

Independent Entertainment’s Sarah Lebutsch, Head of International Sales, will handle international sales and co-rep with CAA’s Nick Ogiony for North America.

Brad Anderson is represented by Paradigm Agency.

Frank Grillo is represented by CAA, Management 360 and 42West
