Image Nation Abu Dhabi has announced that new movie '99 Homes' will be released in cinemas throughout the UAE this September 24th, in time for the Eid weekend.
The film is a co-production between Image Nation and its longtime international partner Hyde Park Entertainment, and will be distributed in the GCC by Gulf Film.
The film stars Andrew Garfield ('The Amazing Spiderman'), Academy Award-nominated Michael Shannon ('Revolutionary Road') and Golden Globe-winner Laura Dern ('Wild').
'99 Homes' was co-written and directed by Iranian-American director Ramin Bahrani. The film follows a father’s struggle to get back the home that his family was evicted from, by working for the greedy real estate broker who is the source of his frustration.
Michael Garin, CEO of Image Nation, said: “International co-productions like 99 Homes allow us to work with some of the film industry’s finest talent. They also subsidise our local productions, helping us contribute to the growing industry in the UAE and develop local talent.”
Ashok Amritraj, chairman and CEO at Hyde Park Entertainment added: “We are excited to have partnered with Image Nation on another stellar production. The combination of our two companies is very strong and has made for a fantastic slate of movies – I look forward to creating more great content together in the future.”
