[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”14499″ img_size=”800×450″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]One of the movies that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year was Adam Driver’s The Report has been grabbed up by Amazon Studios for $14 million and global rights. This politically driven thriller stars Driver, Annette Bening, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Morrison, Michael C. Hall, Ted Levine, and Corey Stoll.
The premise of The Report focused on Driver’s character, Senate staffer Daniel Jones; during his investigation into the spy agency’s “enhanced interrogation techniques” which roughly translates into torture methods. Jones then conjures up a 525-page report that assists in driving public support away from the CIA’s use of these methods since 9/11.
At Sundance, The Report was particularly praised due to Annette Bening’s performance as Senator Dianne Feinstein. Variety’s Owen Gleiberman gave the film rave reviews, saying that it was the:
“best of ‘70s filmmaking, a fertile time for paranoid classics….staging recent history, and making it convincing, isn’t easy. But Scott Z. Burns brings it all off with supreme confidence.”
Amazon expects a fall of 2019 release for the film, which after this move, sounds like it’s going to be a movie you won’t want to miss.
UPDATE: The Report will hit theaters on September 27th and be available on Amazon October 11th. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
