LONDON (AP) — Imogen Poots and James Norton are set to play American newlyweds in Paris in the British premiere of U.S. playwright Amy Herzog’s acclaimed “Belleville”. London’s Donmar Warehouse theater announced Thursday that the play will run Dec. 7-Feb. 3, starring the two British actors and directed by Michael Longhurst.
It was confirmed that Bleecker Street has secured the worldwide distribution rights to Riley Stearns’ new dark-comedy “The Art of Self-Defense”. Principal photography on the project began on September 11, 2017, and the film is currently shooting in Kentucky. “The Art of Self-Defense” is produced by End Cue and written and directed by Riley Stearns (FAULTS) and will star Jesse Eisenberg, Imogen Poots and Alessandro Nivola.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with an exciting filmmaker like Riley,” said Bleecker Street CEO Andrew Karpen. “Ever since we saw his work at Sundance and SXSW we knew we wanted to be in business with him and we can’t wait to bring his original and hilarious vision to audiences around the world.”
“This is a very personal film that happens to have karate in it. I’m lucky to be surrounded by actors, a crew, producers and a distributor like Bleecker Street who care as deeply about the project as I do,” said Stearns.
The film is produced by Andrew Kortschak, Cody Ryder, Stephanie Whonsetler and Walter Kortschak. Karpen is an Executive Producer on the film.
The deal was negotiated by Kent Sanderson of Bleecker Street and Avy Eschenasy on behalf of Bleecker Street. CAA handled negotiations on behalf of the filmmakers. Bleecker Street did not announce a release date for the film, but more information and a few teasers will be released as the film moves along in production.
