Jim Mickle Finds It Is COLD IN JULY With IFC Films
News out of Park City today is that one of our favorite directors, Jim Mickle (We Are What We Are and Stakeland), will see IFC Films release his latest film Cold In July this summer. IFC bought the North American rights for the thriller adapted from the novel by Joe R. Lansdale (one of my favorite authors, by the way) and plans to release the film theatrically and on VOD.
Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films says: "Jim Mickle is a major talent who has just delivered his best film yet and IFC Films could not be more excited to bring it to the large audience it so richly deserves."Twitch editor Todd Brown caught the film during its world premiere and had this to say:
Director Jim Mickle added, "Our whole team is ecstatic to be partnering with IFC Films. This is the perfect fit for our film. Seven years ago we set out to bring Joe's work to the big screen, so to be back at Sundance with this film and this incredible cast makes it all worth it. So far the response has been beyond our wildest dreams."
Taking a chance by expanding his repertoire and moving away from the relative safety of the horror world, Mickle here moves from strength to strength. Once again, this is a remarkable bit of work from one of the brightest lights on the American indie scene.
