Lionsgate and Fifth Season are launching the project ahead of the Cannes market. The film represents a first collaboration between the two companies who are now looking into the possibility of a slate of films together.
Pic will be directed by Jan Komasa, the Polish director whose film Corpus Christi was recently Oscar nominated. Komasa also directed The Hater, which won Best International Narrative Feature at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Screenplay is by Lori Rosene-Gambino, based on an original story by Komasa and Rosene-Gambino. The film will be produced by Nick Wechsler, Steve Schwartz, Paula Mae Schwartz and Kate Churchill. Rosene-Gambino executive-produces.
Lionsgate’s Lauren Bixby will oversee the film in collaboration with Fifth Season. Christopher Davis negotiated the deals on behalf of Lionsgate.
“It’s rare to read a script that keeps you so captivated and emotionally invested like Anniversary does,” said Fifth Season’s Graham Taylor and Chris Rice. “Jan is the perfect filmmaker to bring this thrilling story to life and we are excited to go on this journey with Lionsgate, this talented filmmaking team, and this amazing cast.”
