‘Black Death’ U.S. rights go to Magnet Releasing
HollywoodNews.com: The U.S. rights to Christopher Smith’s film ‘Black Death’ have reportedly been acquired by the Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures.
‘Black Death’ stars Sean Bean and is a creepy medieval period film in which a group aims to get rid of suspected paganism in a village that has not yet been affected by the black plague while the rest of Europe suffers from it.
“On the one hand it is a violent historical drama and on the other, a terrifying horror movie,” director Christopher Smith has said about the film.
Magnet is reportedly planning on releasing the film in early 2011.
