By Casey Cipriani

IFC Films announced today from the Cannes Film Festival that the company has acquired all North American rights to Kristian Levring’s Western “The Salvation.”

Set in 1870s America, the story begins when settler named Jon kills his family’s murderer, which unleashes the fury of notorious gang leader Delarue. Betrayed by his corrupt and cowardly community, the peaceful pioneer must turn vengeful hunter, slay the outlaws, and cleanse the town’s black heart.

The film, with a screenplay by Levring and Anders Thomas Jensen, stars Mads Mikkelsen as the lead character Jon, with the rest of the cast rounded out by Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Eric Cantona, Mikael Persbrandt, Jonathan Pryce and Douglas Henshall.  “Kristian Levring has assembled an incredible cast and created a classic Western that keeps you on the edge of your seat,” said President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films Jonathan Sehring.

“The Salvation” was produced by Sisse Graum Jørgensen, and executive produced by Peter Aalbæk Jensen and Peter Garde. The film had its world premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival in the Out of Competition Midnight section. The rights were acquired from Danish company TrustNordick and the deal was negotiated between Susan Wendt, Head of Sales from TrustNordisk and Arianna Bocco, SVP of Acquisitions from Sundance Selects/IFC Films.
