Sundance: Daniel Radcliffe's 'Kill Your Darlings' and 'Toy's House' are heading to theaters
Beat Generation drama and coming-of-age comedy nab distribution deals
Daniel Radcliffe's latest non-"Harry Potter" effort will soon be arriving at your local theater.
"Kill Your Darlings" (review), in which the "Harry Potter" star portrays a young Allen Ginsberg, has been acquired at Sundance by Sony Pictures Classics, according to Deadline. Also starring Dane DeHaan (a.k.a. the new Harry Osborn), Ben Foster, Michael C. Hall, Jack Huston and Elizabeth Olsen, the John Krokidas-directed drama focuses on the real-life murder that drew together Beat Generation icons Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac (Huston) and William Burroughs (Foster) at Columbia University in 1944.
Also acquiring distribution at the festival this evening was coming-of-age comedy "Toy's House," which CBS Films picked up for a Stateside release. The plot of the film follows three teenage boys (Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso and Moises Arias) as they journey into the wilderness to start a new life living off the land. Helmed by first-time director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, it also stars Nick Offerman and Megan Mulally.
“'Toy's House' couldn’t have found a better home than with CBS Films," said Vogt-Roberts in a statement. "We set out to make a comedy that was hilarious and full of heart – but most importantly we set out to make a comedy that was engaging. CBS Films is so passionate about this movie and share my thoughts that comedy can be poignant and beautiful. The response at Sundance has been overwhelming and I can’t wait for CBS Films to share TOY’S HOUSE with audiences everywhere.”
Stay tuned for more Sundance acquisitions news in the coming days.
The 2013 Sundance Film Festival runs through January 27.
