A24 Acquires U.S. Rights to Julianne Moore's GLORIA BELL
A24 has acquired U.S. rights to GLORIA BELL starring Julianne Moore, according to Variety. A24 is planning a spring 2019 release.
GLORIA BELL is set to have its world premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The film is an English-language remake of Chilean director Sebastián Lelio's 2013 breakout feature film "Gloria." The plot centers on a free-spirited divorcée (Moore) who spends her days at a straight-laced office job and her nights on the dance floors of various Los Angeles clubs. After meeting Arnold (John Turturro) on a night out, she finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance.
Brad Garrett, Rita Wilson, and Michael Cera also star in GLORIA BELL.
A24 spoke about the acquisition saying, "Lelio has made a completely heartwarming and winning new film, building upon his own original work while creating something fresh and universal. Julianne Moore gives one of her very best performances in the central role, creating an incredibly complex and nuanced character that the audience roots for at every turn. We are so thrilled to be working with Sebastián and Julianne and to be bringing this wonderful movie out into the world."
Lelio wrote the screenplay, directed, and produced GLORIA BELL.
