“Passion” finds UK Distributor

Screendaily is reporting that “Passion” found a distributor for the UK and Ireland. Metrodome will release the movie in the UK later this year.

Metrodome has picked up UK and Ireland rights to Brian De Palma’s Passion. The deal was negotiated by Carole Baraton from Wild Bunch and Metrodome’s head of acquisitions Giles Edwards. Theatrical release is scheduled for later in the year.

And some news on the US release date: FilmStage reported a few days ago that the US distributor EntertainmentOne is aiming for a July 2013 release for the movie in the US.

But on to the good news: we’ve received word that Brian De Palma‘s Passion, a title anticipated by many around these here parts, is finally coming to U.S. theaters this July, courtesy of eOne. (A specific date is not locked in at this time, though, with distribution handled by a smaller company, competing blockbusters shouldn’t be much of a deterrent in selection.)
