RLJE Films, Shudder and AMC+ acquire The Apology starring Anna Gunn

RLJE Films, Shudder and AMC+ have partnered and fully financed the new thriller, The Apology. The film will be released by RLJE Films on December 16 in theaters and streaming on Shudder and AMC+ the same day.

Directed and written by Alison Star Locke, in her feature film writing/directing debut, THE APOLOGY stars Anna Gunn (“Breaking Bad,” Sully), Linus Roache (My Policeman, “Homeland”), and Janeane Garofalo (Wet Hot American Summer, Reality Bites).

In THE APOLOGY, twenty years after the disappearance of her daughter, recovering alcoholic Darlene Hagen (Anna Gunn) is preparing to host her family’s Christmas celebration with her best friend Gretchen (Janeane Garofalo). Late Christmas Eve, Darlene’s estranged ex-brother-in-law, Jack (Linus Roache) arrives unannounced, bearing nostalgic gifts and a heavy secret. Soon, Darlene finds herself caught between reason and ruthless instinct. Trapped together by a dangerous storm, a battle of wits escalates to a violent game of revenge.

“THE APOLOGY is like nothing else you will see this holiday season. An intense and chilling thriller led by a tour-de-force performance from Anna Gunn,” said Mark Ward, Chief Acquisitions Officer of RLJE Films. “We are ecstatic to once again partner with our friends at Shudder and Company X Productions to bring this captivating original to audiences.”

Awarded the ReFrame Stamp for gender-balanced production, THE APOLOGY was produced by Lisa Whalen, Kim Sherman and Stacy Jorgensen of Company X Productions, the all-female production company behind films like No Man of God and Seven Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss.

Ward and Betsy Rodgers from RLJE Films negotiated the deal with Whalen and Jorgensen on behalf of the filmmakers.

Anna Gunn is repped by the Gersh Agency, Linus Roache is repped by Authentic Talent & Literary Management and Tavistock Wood Management, and Janeane Garofalo is repped by the Gersh Agency and Independent Artists.
