  • The Wrap
Sony Pictures Classics has acquired the rights to the U.S. and select international territories for “The Father,” which stars Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman and is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival later this month.

The Father” is based on French writer Florian Zeller’s own adaptation of his acclaimed stage play. Zeller directed the film based on a screenplay he co-wrote with Osfar winner Christopher Hampton.

In the upcoming film adaptation, Hopkins and Colman star as father and daughter — one mischievous, the other caring — who battle the universal prophecy of loss that comes with age. “The Father” hums and bristles with compassion; celebrating an intimate, absorbing, comedic, and moving story about our own real-life human condition, according to Sony’s description. No release information has yet been set for the film.
