Founded by Breaking Glass Pictures executive Michael Repsch, Dark Star Pictures will be looking to solidify a full 2018 release slate with finished films at AFM.
“Dark Star Pictures is committed to bringing diversified and hyper-targeted content to a millennial-focused audience in the digital age,” Repsch said. “Our goal is to bring auteur-driven [and] unique voices to North American audiences, films that challenge viewers while keeping them wanting more and, most importantly, starting conversations.”
“Entanglement” — slated for Feb. 9 — will be Dark Star’s first nationwide theatrical, VOD, and digital release. The film premiered at the 2017 Seattle International Film Festival. Middleditch (“Silicon Valley”) plays a man recovering from a suicide attempt who accidentally falls in love with a woman, portrayed by Jess Weixler (AMCs “The Son”).
