Dustin Hoffman, Paul Giamatti ‘Barney’s Version’ finds distrib

HollywoodNews.com: There may not have been a watershed of arthouse films at the box office this summer, but as award season ramps up, the pipeline is about to change.

Sony Pictures Classics picked up the U.S. rights to “Barney’s Version,” a drama-edy about Barney Panofsky, a candid guy and his relationships with his three wives, his outrageous father and a dissolute best friend. Barney’s life is chronicled over 30 years and two continents.

“Barney’s Version,” directed by Richard J. Lewis (CBS’ “CSI”) is based on the comic novel by Mordecai Richler. Oscar nominee Paul Giamatti plays Barney. Oscar winner Dustin Hoffman and Oscar nominee Minnie Driver also star.

“Barney’s Version” is currently in competition at the Venice Film Festival and will be presented at the Gala Presentation at this year’s Toronto Film Festival.

“Several years before starting production on ‘Barney’s Version,’ I approached Michael Barker and Tom Bernard. I told them about my relationship with Mordecai Richler and about how important this project was for me and that I would not trust anyone other than Sony Classics to distribute it in America. I was determined to make ‘Barney’s Version’ the beneficiary of their skill and experience. I am now delighted to place my film in their talented hands,” said the film’s producer Robert Lantos in a statement.

A domestic release date hasn’t been set as of yet for “Barney’s Version.”
