Screen Media buys ‘City’

March release planned for Hopkins starrer

Screen Media has acquired all rights for “The City of Your Final Destination,” starring Anthony Hopkins and directed by James Ivory, and will release the pic theatrically in March.

The film, based on the 2002 novel of the same name by Peter Cameron, also stars Laura Linney, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Omar Metwally, Alexandra Maria Lara, Norma Aleandro and Hiroyuki Sanada.

“The City of Your Final Destination” tells the tale of a young American academic, who attempts to persuade the reluctant heirs of a celebrated Uruguayan novelist to allow him to write an authorized biography of the writer. Hopkins portrays the writer’s brother and Linney plays the writer’s widow.

Produced by Paul Bradley and Pierre Proner, “The City of Your Final Destination” was written by Ivory’s long-time collaborator Ruth Jhabvala. The film was shot in Argentina’s pampas.

Screen Media’s current releases include the documentary, “Bustin’ Down the Door”; “Lymelife,” starring Alec Baldwin and Emma Roberts; and “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee,” starring Robin Wright, Alan Arkin, Blake Lively and Keanu Reeves.
