Aaron Paul’s ‘The Parts You Lose’ Acquired by Samuel Goldwyn Films
Samuel Goldwyn Films has picked up the domestic rights to Aaron Paul’s “The Parts You Lose,” the distributor announced Thursday.
Christopher Cantwell is directing the feature that also stars Scoot McNairy, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Danny Murphy. Mark Johnson (“Breaking Bad”) is producing through his Gran Via banner alongside Tom Williams, Paul and The H Collective’s Kenneth Huang.
“The Parts You Lose,” which was written by Darren Lemke, will have its world premiere at the Sun Valley Film Festival on Thursday. Paul is also being presented with the Pioneer Award at the festival.
In the film, Paul plays a fugitive criminal who forms an unlikely bond with Wesley, a deaf child (Murphy). When authorities close in on the farm he’s chosen to hide out in, Wesley has to decide whom to trust.
“We’re thrilled to be working with such an exceptional cast whose character relationships within the film are riveting and impactful,” Meg Longo, senior director at Samuel Goldwyn, said. “Christopher Cantwell crafts an impressively fresh thriller that, like its winter atmosphere, paints humanity in shades of grey.”
The H Collective fully financed and oversaw production on the thriller. The H Collective’s Nic Crawley and Kent Huang, Douglas Jones, Blue Fox Entertainment’s Todd Slater and Paula Van Der Oest serve as executive producers on the film. Longo negotiated on behalf of Samuel Goldwyn Films with UTA, which represented the filmmakers. Blue Fox Entertainment is handling the international rights.
Samuel Goldwyn Films is planning a release for the film in late summer.
