May 19, 2017


Annapurna Pictures have joined Jacques Audiard’s THE SISTER’S BROTHERS, a noir-ish western, starring Joaquin Phoenix,  Jake Gyllenhaal, John C. Reilly and Riz Ahmed.

Annapurna will produce and co-finance with Why Not Productions. Based on Patrick deWitt’s novel of the same name, the film tells the story of two brothers in 1850s Oregon who are hired to kill a prospector.

Reilly will produce alongside Michael De Luca, Rosa Attrab and Alison Dickey. Annapurna’s Megan Ellison will executive produce.

The Sister’s Brother marks Audiard’s first English-language project after winning the Palme d’Or, the Cannes Film Festival’s highest honor for Dheepan. 

Production is set to begin this summer.
