Sky Cinema snaps up Fran Kranz’s Mass
12th September 2021
Sky Cinemas has snapped up the rights to Sundance hit Mass.
Set predominantly on one set, the film looks at two sets of parents, who, years after an unspeakable tragedy tore their lives apart, agree to talk privately in an attempt to move forward. The study of grief, anger, and acceptance was a hit at Sundance, where it had its world premiere earlier this year.
Now, Sky Cinema has acquired the UK and Ireland rights to the film, which is the directorial debut of Fran Kranz (Dollhouse, Cabin in the Woods). It stars Emmy Award winner Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale), Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), Martha Plimpton (The Goonies) and Tony Award winner Reed Birney (House of Cards).
Kranz says: “I could not be more excited or proud to be working with Sky on the release of Mass in the UK and Ireland. While it’s a small and intimate film it grapples with large and urgent themes. The leading actors give four unforgettable performances of such emotional scale, and it all comes together in one very formidable experience. More than anything, I am honoured to share their work with the world.”
Julia Stuart, Director of Original Films at Sky comments: “It is a great privilege for us to bring Kranz’s writer-director debut Mass to a wider audience, as it joins our Sky Original film line-up. Ann Dowd, Jason Isaacs, Martha Plimpton and Reed Birney’s stellar performances of Kranz’s powerful script creates a rare and powerful film and I can’t wait to share it with our customers.”
The film will be released in cinemas and on Sky Cinema in 2022.
