EXCLUSIVE: UK distributor picks up Good Kill [pictured] and Politics of Love.
Arrow Films has acquired UK and Ireland rights to Voltage Pictures’ Good Kill and Politics of Love (formerly titled Nailed).
Written and directed by Andrew Niccol (The Host, In Time), Good Kill stars Ethan Hawke as a drone pilot who begins to question his mission of killing the Taliban. It also stars January Jones.
The UK distributor will also release the long-gestating Politics of Love, formerly titled Nailed when it was originally directed by David O Russell in 2008. Producer Kia Jam put together this cut of the film.
Starring Jessica Biel, James Marsden and Jake Gyllenhaal, the film follows a small town waitress (Biel) who gets a nail lodged in her head which leads to unpredictable behaviour and a journey to Washington DC.
Tom Stewart, acquisitions director for Arrow Films, commented: “Arrow Films are thrilled to be collaborating with everyone at Voltage Pictures on two high-calibre films that show so much potential. We look forward to bringing both films over to audiences in the UK and Eire in 2015.”
“We are excited to embark on our first deal with Arrow Films in what hopes to be a great partnership,” added Elisabeth Costa de Beauregard of Voltage Pictures.
Arrow Films will release both films in 2015.
