Art-world satire set for April 23 release

IFC Films has acquired North American rights to Duncan Ward’s art-world satire “Boogie Woogie” and set an April 23 theatrical release.

IFC said it would launch “Boogie Woogie” on video-on-demand beginning April 21.

The film, adapted by Danny Moynihan from his novel of the same name, is set in the contemporary London art scene where lust, ambition and power prevail. It’s centered on the acquisition of Mondrian’s abstract painting “Boogie Woogie.”

Cast includes Danny Huston, Stellan Skarsgard, Heather Graham, Alan Cumming, Christopher Lee, Charlotte Rampling, Amanda Seyfried, Jaime Winstone and Jack Huston. Pic preemed last year at the Edinburgh Film Festival.

The film is an Autonomous/Colourframe production with S Films, in association with Constance Media, Firefly Films, Muse Prods., P&C Arcade Films and Magna Films. Producers are Cat Villiers, Chris Simon, Kami Naghdi and Moynihan.
