Sundance Film Festival unveiled a portion of its 2018 slate today, and we're excited to say we have not one, not two but three FilmNation titles on their way to Park City!
'The Catcher Was a Spy', directed by Ben Lewin [The Sessions] is playing the Premiers section along with the latest film from auteur Gus Van Sant 'Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot', starring Joaquin Phoenix.
And finally, Paul Dano's directoral debut 'Wildlife', starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan, is playing in US Dramatic Competition.
This is the second year in a row we'll be heading to snowy and (sometimes) sunny Utah. This time last year, we were gearing up for the World Premiere of 'The Big Sick' and look where we are now!
The 34th Sundance Film Festival will run from January 18 - 28, 2018.
