Distrib takes 'Killers,' 'Potiche,' 'Apart Together'
TOKYO — Japanese indie distrib Gaga has announced its pickups at Cannes.
Gaga bought local rights to Paul W.S. Anderson’s “Three Musketeers” from Summit,
Robert Luketic’s “Killers” from Lionsgate, Francois Ozon’s “Potiche” from Wild Bunch and Wang Quan-an’s “Apart Together” from Celluloid Dreams.
Gaga has had its ups and downs in the tough Japanese market since its start in 1986, but is on a roll with the French docu “Oceans” earning $26 million this year.
Also the Radu Mihaileanu classical music drama “Le Concert” is cleaning up on the arthouse circuit, with Gaga predicting a $2 million total cume on just 13 prints.
