Distrib plans day-and-date theatrical, VOD release

LONDON — Artificial Eye has snapped up U.K. rights to D.R. Hood’s “Wreckers” while Content Film has boarded the pic for international sales.

Artificial Eye will release the pic in Blighty alongside a day-on-date release with its online platform Curzon On Demand.

The pic, toplining Benedict Cumberbatch, Claire Foy and Shaun Evans, will screen at the London U.K. Film Focus event in the capital next week.
