NEW YORK (September 11, 2015) – Sony Pictures Classics announced today that they will release THE BRONZE in North America. THE BRONZE, Bryan Buckley's directorial debut, was written by Melissa Rauch (“Big Bang Theory”) and Winston Rauch, with Melissa starring in the film alongside Gary Cole (“Veep,” “The Good Wife”), Thomas Middleditch (“Silicon Valley,” THE WOLF OF WALL STREET), Sebastian Stan (CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, “Once Upon a Time”), Hailey Lu Richardson (“Ravenswood”), and Cecily Strong (“Saturday Night Live”).

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions' label Stage 6 Films acquired worldwide rights prior to the start of the production and will distribute internationally.


The film, which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, is a Duplass Brothers Production and is produced by Stephanie Langhoff (“Togetherness,” THE SKELETON TWINS) and executive produced by Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass, Bryan Buckley, Melissa Rauch, Winston Rauch, and Michael C. Cuddy.


“Making THE BRONZE was a dream come true for us and we could not be more thrilled to have Sony Pictures Classics release it” stated Melissa and Winston Rauch. “We're tremendous fans of their films and it is a true honor to be included amongst them.”
