Cannes Film Fest 2018: Destroyer, Crime Thriller StarringNicole Kidman, Acquired by Annapurna

Annapurna has acquired U.S. rights to Destroyer out of the market of 2018 Cannes Film Fest.

The crime thriller has been building buzz since sales agents screened promos last week.

Nicole Kidman stars as an LAPD detective whose undercover work with a California gang as a younger cop has tragic repercussions later in her life and career.

There was buzz that this could be another awards-worthy turn by the Oscar-Globes-Emmy winning actress.  But it’s unclear right now if Annapurna will release the film during the 2018 Oscar Awards season, or in 2019.

Other studios, like Amazon and NEON, were interested in “Destroyer,” whose price tag is in the seven figure.
