Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Sony Pictures Classics says it has acquired all rights in North America to Roman Polanski's French-language film, Based on a True Story.
Adapted from Delphine de Vigan's novel of the same name, the psychological thriller recently wrapped production in Paris. It stars Emmanuelle Seigner and Eva Green.
Co-written by Polanski and Olivier Assayas, the movie is about a best-selling author in Paris, who finds herself suffering from writer's block.
"When a mysterious woman enters her life at a book signing, Delphine's life and all that she had come to rely on becomes a roller-coaster resulting in unexpected consequences," a synopsis said.
"I am very pleased that Sony Pictures Classics will be distributing Based on a True Story in North America. Sony Classics is a company that has long tradition in supporting European cinema. I am looking forward to working again with Michael Barker and Tom Bernard," Polanski said in a statement.
"Based on a True Story is the kind of thriller audiences are hungering for, as exceptional and fresh as Repulsion and The Tenant were in their day. Polanski's new film promises to be his very best," SPC added.
