Peace Arch picks up ‘Pittsburgh’

Thurber's 'Mysteries' to open this spring

A year after its Sundance preem, Peace Arch announced they’ve nabbed North American rights to the coming-of-ager “The Mysteries of Pittsburgh,” based on Michael Chabon’s (“Wonder Boys”) first tome. The distrib will release it in the spring.

Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (“Dodgeball”) pic stars Jon Foster, Sienna Miller, Mena Suvari, Peter Sarsgaard, and Nick Nolte. Michael London, Thor Benander, and Jason Ajax Mercer produced.

Set in 1980s Pittsburgh, story follows a teen’s transformative summer with his mobster father, sometime girlfriend, a beautiful debutante and her thug boyfriend.

“Although set in the early ’80s ‘The Mysteries of Pittsburgh’ is as relevant and timeless today as it was when Michael Chabon first wrote it years ago,” said London.

The film was co-financed by Axon Films, Sherezade Films and Visitor Pictures. CAA brokered the deal with Peace Arch Home Entertainment.
