New York, NY (February 16, 2012)—Oscilloscope Laboratories announced today that it has acquired US rights to 28 HOTEL ROOMS, the debut feature from writer/director Matt Ross, which had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival last month. The film will be released in theaters nationally later this year preceded by a premium VOD release.
28 HOTELS ROOMS is a raw and candid look at an intense sexual affair that escalates from a one-night stand into a profound relationship.
Both Chris Messina and Marin Ireland turn out vulnerable and passionately honest performances and Ross’s adept writing and directing make for a powerful, immediate, and unexpected love story.
Of the acquisition, Ross said, “I speak for the whole team behind 28 HOTEL ROOMS when I say how absolutely thrilled we are that Oscilloscope Laboratories will be releasing our film. Their catalogue speaks volumes about the quality of independent voices they champion and we are all incredibly honored to be included in that illustrious company.”
The deal was closed out of Berlin. It was negotiated by David Fenkel and David Laub of Oscilloscope with Kevin Iwashina and Christine D’Souza of Preferred Content and Elsa Ramo on behalf of the filmmakers.
28 HOTEL ROOMS was written and directed by Matt Ross and stars Chris Messina and Marin Ireland. The film was produced by Lynette Howell, Louise Runge, and Samantha Housman and executive produced by Chris Messina, Andrew Meieran, Stefan Nowicki, Joey Carey, and Alex Sagalchik. Elle Driver is currently selling international territories at the European Film Market.
