We already know about the Amazon deal but The Hollywood Reporter scored some more 411 about The Lost City of Z distribution and deals while at TIFF this week.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
A week after Amazon Studios picked up North American rights to the hotly contested Charlie Hunnam starrer The Lost City of Z, the streaming giant has closed a deal with Bleecker Street to release the film theatrically.Click HERE to read the entire article.
Sources peg the overall deal, which was brokered by CAA, at a whopping mid-eight figures.
Amazon is putting the finishing touches on the deal with Andrew Karpen's Bleecker Street to release the James Gray-helmed film in spring 2017 -- though the rollout plan is still being worked out. Amazon's Bob Berney will spearhead the marketing and distribution.
The film, which also stars Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller, is produced by Brad Pitt's Plan B.
THR also reports that "Bleecker Street, the upstart distributor behind Eye in the Sky and Captain Fantastic, is expected to be an active buyer at Toronto." They have a great article about how Bleecker Street is going to aggressively campaign during awards season for their film, Eye in the Sky. Great movie too. Love to see Rob's film falling in good hands. :)
