Rupert Grint’s Comrade gets distribution deals at Cannes!

Rupert Grint’s Comrade gets distribution deals at Cannes! May 18, 2011, 8:15 AM — The new film, Comrade, starring our very own Rupert Grint has just been presented at the Cannes Film Festival at a closed promo-screening. This has resulted in no less than three distribution deals – which have all been confirmed by Trustnordisk today.

As mentioned previously, the film is directed by the Norwegian director Petter Næss and produced by Zentropa Norway – but what we haven’t been able to disclose until today is that the film will be distributed by Metrodome (UK), Kino Swiat (Poland) and Vendetta (Australia).

According to Rikke Ennis, CEO from Trustnordisk, the “presale has never been stronger and this shows on the sales. The interest has been overwhelming.” No doubt this holds promise for Comrade‘s future chances in getting more distribution deals.
