Vertical Entertainment Lands Global Rights To Winona Ryder Thriller ‘The Cow’ Following Bidding War – SXSW
EXCLUSIVE: Vertical Entertainment has prevailed in a bidding war surrounding SXSW thriller The Cow—landing worldwide rights to the film starring Winona Ryder (Stranger Things) and John Gallagher Jr. (10 Cloverfield Lane), and slating it for an exclusive theatrical release later this year.
In the film directed by Homecoming co-creator Eli Horowitz, Kath (Ryder) and her boyfriend (Gallagher Jr.) arrive at a remote cabin in the redwoods, only to discover that a mysterious younger couple is already there. The rental has apparently been double-booked, and with nowhere else to go, they decide to share the cabin with these strangers. When her boyfriend disappears with the young woman, Kath becomes obsessed with finding an explanation for their sudden breakup—but the truth is far stranger than she could have ever imagined.
