“RocknRolla” Is Very English!

RocknRollaRocknRolla,” Guy Ritchie‘s new movie is searching for a new distributor. The producer of Guy Ritchie’s upcoming gangster film “RocknRolla” Joel Silver has been screening the movie for rival studios Lionsgate and Sony in the hope that they will take it away from Warner Bros., according to the Los Angeles Times. Alan Horn, chief operating officer of Warner Bros, said that he would honour a small-scale release agreement for “RocknRolla,” even though he doubted its commercial appeal. “I think it’s a well-made picture, but while it’s funny in spots, it’s very English. [!] I don’t think it’s broadly commercial. It feels like a film that deserves a spirited release, but not a wide one. Joel has an 800-screen deal, which we’ll honour, but we might not be willing to spend the marketing money he wants us to,” Horn said. He added that he would be open to selling the film to a rival if the right offer came along: “If Joel is thinking there is someone out there willing to spend twice as much money as we’re willing to, I’m sure he will pursue that.” RocknRolla’s scheduled UK release date is September 5, 2008. US release is expected in October.
