Matthias Schoenaerts and Joel Kinnaman Action Thriller ‘Brothers by Blood’ Sells to Vertical Entertainment.

Exclusive by Variety:

“Brothers by Blood,” a crime drama starring Matthias Schoenaerts and Joel Kinnaman, has sold North American distribution rights to Vertical Entertainment.

The movie, originally called “The Sound of Philadelphia” will be released in select theaters and on video-on-demand on Jan. 22, 2021.

Jérémie Guez wrote, directed and produced “Brothers By Blood,” based on Pete Dexter’s 1991 novel “Brotherly Love.” Set in Philly, the film follows Schoenaerts’ character named Peter, who watches helplessly a his sister is murdered — a brutal occurrence that leaves him with lasting generational wounds. The cast also includes Maika Monroe and Ryan Phillippe.

“‘Brothers by Blood’ explores family ties and the weight of the past that is transmitted from generation to generation, themes that have obsessed me since I was a kid and influenced me both as a writer and a director,” Guez said. “It has been an immense privilege to adapt Pete Dexter’s novel for cinema and an even greater privilege to be able to do so with such formidable actors. I am beyond thrilled to bring this story to audiences everywhere.”

Aimée Buidine and Julien Madon of Cheyenne also produced “Brothers by Blood, along with Christine Vachon and David Hinjosa of Killer Films and Trevor Matthews and Nick Gordon of Brookstreet Pictures.

“It’s fitting that a thriller like ‘Brothers by Blood’ be set against the backdrop of The City of Brotherly Love,” said Rich Goldberg, co-president of Vertical Entertainment. “With a plot that keeps you guessing, the film examines the costs of family loyalty and what anyone is willing to do — or not do — to prove that loyalty. We can’t wait to bring a film as exciting as this one to audiences everywhere.”

Peter Jarowey and Josh Spector at Vertical with Endeavor Content negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.

After Massive Trailer Debut, ABC sets virtual Premiere Event for ‘Big Sky’

After Massive Trailer Debut, ABC sets virtual Premiere Event for ‘Big Sky’

ABC’s new drama series Big Sky from uber-producer David E. Kelley snagged a few headlines when the trailer dropped in October thanks to views that topped 25 million in the first three days, including 12.2 million on Twitter alone.

Now to celebrate Kelley’s return to network television after such high-profile cable dramas as Big Little Lies and The Undoing, ABC is pulling out all the stops for an exclusive Nov. 12 virtual premiere event. The Kelley-created thriller Big Sky follows private detectives Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and Cody Hoyt (Ryan Phillippe) as they team up with his estranged wife and ex-cop, Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick), to search for two sisters (Jade Pettyjohn, Natalie Alyn Lind) who have been kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote highway in Montana. It’s based on the series of books by C.J. Box.

Per show reps, the virtual premiere has been designed to give the audience the experience of stepping inside the world of Big Sky, Montana to experience what it’s like to explore the town. To accomplish that, ABC teamed with event producers Little Cinema to build a physical recreation (rendering seen below) of Big Sky’s “All In Bar,” a location featured in the pilot episode. It will be populated by two live performers.

Music from the show will be performed by a “local” Big Sky artist during the pre-party experience. Following the premiere episode debut, a live Q&A will follow. Attendees are also said to be receiving “Country Crate Meals” delivered to their respective homes to enjoy during the event. It will include country dinner staples, local Montana treats, a Montana state baseball cap, a Yellowstone candle and a pine-needle tree to plant at home.

Explains Naomi Bulochnikov-Paul, senior vp communications at ABC Entertainment: “With the legendary David E. Kelley helming our new drama ‘Big Sky,’ we wanted to create a unique shared experience that celebrates the show’s gripping storytelling, offers a flavor of the thrilling twists and turns to come and most importantly, celebrates our amazing talent.”
