David Gleeson’s ‘Don’t Go’ Acquired By IFC Films, Will Hit Theaters In October

Exclusive: IFC Films has acquired U.S rights to Don’t Go, the new film from David Gleeson, and has set on October 26 theatrical release date for it. Stephen Dorff and Melissa George star in the unconventional supernatural thriller from Gleeson, who is coming off co-writing the script for the Jrr Tolkien biopic Tolkien starring Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins, which Dome Karukoski is directing and Chernin Entertainment is producing for Fox Searchlight.

Don’t Go, the Ireland-born Gleeson’s first helming effort since writing and directing 2006’s The Front Line, centers on Ben and Hazel (Dorff and George), whose young daughter has just died. After relocating to open a seaside hotel on the west coast of Ireland, Ben begins to have vivid dreams about his little girl which he becomes convinced holds the key to bringing her back to life. Simon Delaney and Charlotte Bradley also star.
