Following closely after the film wrapped shooting, it appears as though Roman Polanski’s upcoming film, CARNAGE, has found a home.

Deadline is reporting that Sony Pictures Classics has nabbed the film, which is based on the Yasmina Reza play entitled God Of Carnage. The film stars Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Kate Winslet, and Christoph Waltz as two couples who come together over dinner during a night following a schoolyard fight between their two children.

The film will run in real-time, and clocks in at roughly 100-105 minutes, so this should prove to be one hell of an interesting film. The premise itself sounds quite compelling, playing like the epitome of a character study. Featuring four of the best actors we have today, this is a perfect film for Polanski to take on, and SPC is really the perfect place for a film like this to call home.

With a premiere at one of the year’s late festivals, expect this sucker to play heavily into this year’s awards season.
