Love that this article also gives us some more info about the plot. How great does this movie sound – so exciting. Rob as a ‘wealthy & successful criminal’ loving the sounds of that!! Thanks to FilmNation:

FilmNation will handle international sales and distribution on Academy Award® winning director James Marsh’s (Man on Wire) Hold On To Me starring Academy Award® Nominee Carey Mulligan (Drive, The Great Gatsby, An Education) and Robert Pattinson (Twilight, Cosmopolis). Hold On To Me is written by Brad Ingelsby (Out of the Furnace) and is an electrifying thriller based on the extraordinary true story of a femme fatale who kidnaps and ransoms the town’s richest man. The film will be produced by Alexandra Milchan alongside Todd Field and Indian Paintbrush’s Steven Rales and Mark Roybal.

Mulligan plays Nancy, a small town girl who callously leaves her boyfriend Jimmy (Pattinson) behind to chase a modelling career in New York City, breaking his heart in the process. To Nancy’s surprise, New York isn’t impressed by her and at 26, she’s back home waiting tables at the local diner. When she gets word that Jimmy has become a wealthy and successful criminal in Chicago, she tracks him down with a view to winning his affections, only to find crushing rejection. Fuelled by jealousy and an unquenchable thirst for fortune, Nancy finds Danny, a naïve pawn she can seduce and manipulate to her own ends and together they embark on a life of crime. Success comes fast, and leaves faster but nothing and no one will stand in the way of Nancy’s naked, dangerous and deadly ambition.

The producers commented, “Glen Basner and his team are simply the best in the business. We are elated to be partnering with FilmNation in bringing to life this stranger than fiction, true crime story.”

Sales will commence at the upcoming American Film Market.

FilmNation’s Glen Basner said, “Hold On To Me is a compelling and sexy modern day Bonnie and Clyde story that we’re excited to introduce to buyers at AFM. Carey Mulligan is certain to deliver one of the most memorable femme fatale performances in cinematic history.”

    Indeed @jules 2013 are we there yet?Lol

    I can’t wait for this movie. as well as, the other 3 that he is supposwd to make in 2013. That’s 4 in 1 year! What a feast for Rob’s fans! I hope they are not released in only a couple of venues. I’ll never get to see any of them until the DVD comes out. That is entirely unacceptable. I didn’t get to see “Bel Ami” or “Cosmopolis” because of ‘limited release’. I hate those 2 words when they are associated with Rob.

    @Kay fingers crossed they are not limited release. Yeah 4 films in 1 year and a few in the pipeline too. So great being a fan of Rob’s and can understand your dislike of that phrase!

    So happy for him – makes me feel guilty for being so greedy. The poor guy needs some down-time after all. I hope this is a good experience for him working with different people. Finally he’ll be free of the Twi shackles and all the associated mayhem – yay!
