Italian distributor also acquires John Turturro’s Fading Gigolo.
Distributor Lucky Red has acquired Italian rights to two films world premiering in Venice: Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master starring Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams; and Rama Burshtein’s Fill The Void, sold by The Match Factory, about a Hasidic family from Tel Aviv that experiences a tragedy that impacts the youngest daughter’s hopes for a happy marriage.
The Master will be released in January. Fill The Void will be released in November under the title Riempi Il Vuoto.
Also, Lucky Red has acquired John Turturro’s Fading Gigolo for a release in the second half of 2013. That film is about a book store owner (Woody Allen) who convinces his assistant (Turturro) that he could make a fortune as a professional gigolo. QED International handles sales.
