Stockholm Nabbed by Smith Global Media

Smith Global Media has picked up U.S. distribution rights to the Ethan Hawke- and Noomi Rapace-starrer Stockholm, a thriller from director Robert Budreau based on the true story of a 1973 bank heist and hostage crisis in Stockholm. The deal for the Canadian indie is in the mid-seven figures, including a P&A commitment for a theatrical release in early 2019.

"Stockholm is a quirky and supremely entertaining film, with brilliant performances from the entire cast," Harry Smith, president of Smith Global Media and younger brother of actor Will Smith, said Monday in a statement.

Stockholm follows the drama chronicled in the New Yorker article "The Bank Drama" by Daniel Lan, which tells of the hostages who bonded with their captors and turned against the authorities, giving rise to the psychological phenomenon known as Stockholm Syndrome.

Hawke and Budreau reunited on Stockholm after working together on 2016's Born to Be Blue, in which Hawke starred as jazz legend Chet Baker. Also re-joining the team is #CoreComposer Steve London. The thriller, which also stars Mark Strong, was produced by Nicholas Tabarrok, Budreau, Jonathan Bronfman and Fredrik Zander. Scott Aversano, Will Russell-Shapiro, Jason Blum, William Santor, John Hills, Andrew Chang-Sang, Patrick Roy and Christina Kubacki share executive producer credits.

The deal for Stockholm was negotiated by CAA and Sierra/Affinity for the filmmakers.
