Gravitas Ventures acquires rights to Martha Coolidge Romance – Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: Gravitas Ventures has acquired North American rights to the romantic drama of World War II I will find you from director Martha Coolidge (Dalpige, Real genius). Anthem Sports & Entertainment Company plans to release the title with Adelaide Clemens (To the stars), Leo Suter (Sanditon, Beecham house), Stephen Dorff (Old Henrik, Deputy), Connie Nielsen (Zack Snyders Justice League, Wonder Woman 1984) and Stellan SkarsgÄrd (Dune, Chernobyl) in cinemas and on demand on 25 February.

Inspired by true stories of Polish musicians from the 1930s and 1940s, I will find you centers on the tender, musical relationship between Robert (Suter) and Rachel (Clemens) that is created when the couple meet as music school students – he, a promising singer and she, a violin marvel. While Robert is being torn away from Rachel after the German invasion of Poland, he promises to find her no matter what it costs.

David S. Ward (Flyboys, Sleepless in Seattle) and the Bozenna Intrator (The magic stone, Bait) wrote the script for the film, which was shot on location in Poland and New York. Intrator also produced it with Lukasz Raczynski, Zbigniew John Raczynski and Fred Roos, with Alexander Roos as director.

“I’LL FIND YOU is a beautiful romance film set against the harsh backdrop of World War II,” said Gravitas Ventures’ Director of Acquisitions, Brett Rogalsky. “What director Martha Coolidge was able to do with these elements is really impressive, and we’re excited to bring this film to the public.”

“From the beginning, I loved the theme of this film, that music has an almost magical power to heal,” Coolidge added, “and that it can inspire and move all people, even those at opposite ends of the ideological spectrum.”

Coolidge is an Emmy-nominated and DGA Award winner who has previously directed films, including Material girls, The prince and me, Angie, Lost in Yonkers, Wandering Rose, Ordinary clothes, Real genius and Dalpige, together with episodes of such series as Siren, Angie Tribeca, Madam Secretary, The change of night, Psych and Weeds.

Recent releases from the company include Michael Lembecks Queen Bier; Gabriela Cowperthwaites Our friend, starring Casey Affleck, Dakota Johnson and Jason Segel; Vanguard, directed by Stanley Tong and starring Jackie Chan; and Andy Tennants The secret: Dare to dream, starring Katie Holmes. Gravitas has also recently acquired titles, including Adrian Martinez’s debut as a director iGilbert; The Kathy Bates drama Home, from author-director Franka Potente; family adventure movie The King’s Daughter, starring Pierce Brosnan; Jason Pollocks doc Finding Kendrick Johnson; and The damned, a horror film that marks the directorial debut for writer-directors Elizabeta Vidovic and Kathryn Michell.
