Peace Arch Entertainment has financed “Delirious,” a dark comedy about celebs and paparazzi on the New York nightlife circuit, starring Steve Buscemi, Michael Pitt and Alison Lohman.

Pic is the first of a slate Peace Arch, which has traditionally focused on homevid titles, plans to finance for theatrical release. Company recently hired Penny Wolf from HBO Films to run Peace Arch’s theatrical sales operations.

“Delirious,” which is being helmed by Tom Dicillo (“Living in Oblivion”) and produced by Robert Salerno (“21 Grams,” “All the Pretty Horses”), stars Buscemi as a celebrity photographer who befriends a homeless man (played by Pitt) who aspires to be an actor. Lohman plays the starlet of the moment who befriends Pitt’s character.

“We are very excited to be collaborating with filmmakers of the caliber of Tom and Bob,” said Peace Arch prexy John Flock.
