Booking co. to handle 'Hard Core,' 'Peking Man'

NEW YORK — Cowboy Booking, which released the genre classic “The Beyond” for Quentin Tarantino’s Rolling Thunder Pictures, has picked up two more films from Tarantino’s eclectic banner.

Cowboy will release Bruce McDonald’s “Hard Core Logo,” the story of a Vancouver punk band’s last-ditch reunion tour, and “Mighty Peking Man,” a classic Hong Kong monster movie.

Run by former Miramax Films publicist John Vanco and film festival programmer Noah Cowan, Cowboy handles both theatrical and non-theatrical releases.

Following the Museum of Modern Art’s upcoming Brazilian cinema retrospective, Cowboy will book “Cinema Novo and Beyond” in theaters across the country.

The 60-film Brazilian program, which runs from Nov. 13 to Jan. 21 in New York, was organized by MOMA and the Brazilian Ministry of Culture.

Cowboy is also handling U.S. bookings for Samantha Lang’s “The Well” and Chris Kennedy’s “Doing Time for Patsy Cline” for Australia’s Southern Star Film Sales.

Cowboy is currently on screens with Tim Kirkman’s documentary “Dear Jesse” and this October will release “The Mirror,” Jafar Panahi’s followup to “The White Balloon.”
