Hours after making Oscar history on Parasite‘s dual Best Picture and Best International Film OscarNeon has closed a deal for the Sundance Film Festival buzz title Shirley. Deal is for North American rights and went for low seven figures.

Directed by Josephine Decker from a script by Sarah Gubbins, the film stars Elisabeth Moss, Michael Stuhlbarg, Odessa Young and Logan Lerman. Pic tells the story of what happens when a young couple moves in with the famed author, Shirley Jackson, and her Bennington College professor husband, Stanley Hyman. The young couple hopes to start a new life but instead find themselves fodder for a psycho-drama that inspires Shirley’s next novel.
