Distribution: Entertainment One will distribute ‘Cosmopolis’ in North America

UPDATE: From Deadline, even BETTER news.

Cosmopolis is expected to be in theatres in Canada, the US and this UK later this summer. eOne is looking forward to the Cannes Film Festival and announcing more acquisitions in the coming weeks.

Fantastic news! Do I hear happy sighs of relief from worried limo riders? Entertainment One has wisely nabbed North American distribution rights to ‘Cosmopolis’.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

The deal with Kinology gives the Canadian distributor the North American rights to the thriller that stars Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche and Paul Giamatti, ahead of its Cannes debut.

That gives Toronto-based Entertainment One the North American rights to Cronenberg’s latest film, which is to screen in competition at the Cannes Film Festival.

The Canadian distributor earlier secured the Canadian rights to Cronenberg’s thriller, which is based on Don DeLillo’s novella of the same name.
