Vertical Entertainment has acquired North American distribution rights to thriller RUSHED which stars Siobhan Fallon Hogan (Saturday Night Live), Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgement Day), Jake Weary (Animal Kingdom), Peri Gilpin (Frasier) and newcomers rapper Fat Nick, Justin Linville, Jay Jay Warren, former NFL player Phil Villapiano, Peter Munson Hogan, Sinead Hogan, and Lily Rosenthal.
RUSHED is the story of Barbara O’Brien, an Upstate NY, Irish Catholic mother who says her rosary daily, then swears profusely as she drives her kids to school. Barbara’s life is ruined when her son Jimmy, a college freshman, is involved in a fraternity hazing incident. Barbara resorts to extreme measures when she encounters empty promises in Washington, D.C.
“I wrote the film because as a mother of three, I understand that Hell hath no fury like a mother scorned. After I completed the script, I sent it to Zentropa Films as I have worked as an actress with Lars Von Trier for over 25 years in his films, Dancer in The Dark, Dogville and The House That Jack Built. They immediately called me and agreed to co-produce the film which was fantastic. I am thrilled to have the film with Vertical Entertainment domestically and Octane Entertainment internationally,” said writer, producer and star Siobhan Fallon Hogan.
The deal was negotiated by Josh Spector of Vertical Entertainment and UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers.
RUSHED was directed by Vibeke Muasya, written by Siobhan Fallon Hogan, produced by Siobhan Fallon Hogan, Peter Hogan, Patrick Clifton, Erin Fraser, and Robert Patrick; co-produced by Peter Munson Hogan, Marie Gade and Jo Haskin, cinematography by Matthias Schubert; edited by Sabine Emiliani, with music by Kristian Eidnes Andersen. The film was produced by Emerald Caz Productions and Zentropa Films.
