Millenium will release Linklater’s ‘Bernie’

Jack Black dark comedy opened the L.A. Film Fest

Millennium Entertainment will release Richard Linklater’s dark comedy “Bernie,” starring Jack Black, in March.

Millennium confirmed in July that it was acquiring the distribution rights and announced Thursday that it had closed the deal.

“Bernie” opened the Los Angeles Film Festival in June. Pic stars Black as a mortician and community leader who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a wealthy widow, portrayed by Shirley MacLaine. Matthew McConaughey also stars.

“Bernie” is produced by Mandalay Vision and Wind Dancer. Mark Gill, tapped this summer as president of Millennium Films, handled the releases of a pair of Linklater titles — “Before Sunset” and “A Scanner Darkly” — while heading Warner Independent.

Director of acquisitions Vincent Scordino negotiated the “Bernie” deal on behalf of Millennium Entertainment.

Millennium recently released “Puncture” and will release “Trespass,” which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, on Oct. 14.
