WestEnd Films has landed a series of new deals for Out of the Blue, an upcoming thriller movie that will team Neil LaBute and Diane Kruger.

The rights to the film, which LaBute is writing and directing, went to Australia and New Zealand (Kismet Movies), France (Metropolitan Filmexport), Germany (Koch Films), Spain (A Contracorriente Films), Italy (Eagle Pictures) and the Middle East (Phoenicia Pictures) Israel (Forum Film), Poland (Galapagos Films), Greece (Spentzos Film), Ex-Yugoslavia (Investacommerce) and Portugal (Nos Lusomundo).

LaBute has directed films such as In the Company of Men, Nurse Betty and Death at a Funeral.

The film centers on Connor (Nicholson), whose boring life changes when he meets the enigmatic beauty Marilyn (Kruger). Soon he throws himself headlong into the adulterous affair, the ex-convict with a heart of gold seems destined for the trophy wife. The only catch in their idyllic new life together? Marilyn is trapped in a nightmare with an abusive husband and a vulnerable stepdaughter.
