Lucky Red buys Italian rights to Pacino passion project

Al Pacino’s passion project “Wilde Salome” has picked up its first territory for distribution, as Lucky Red has bought Italian rights to the experimental documentary about Oscar Wilde that preemed at the Venice Int’l Film Festival.

Lucky Red plans a 2012 release for the quirky feature doc that follows Pacino as he re-interprets Wilde’s once banned work “Salome.”

Deal was negotiated by Lucky Red head Andrea Ochipinti and Arclight Films founder Gary Hamilton.

“We knew that Lucky Red was the right distributor for this passion project once we saw the terrific audience reaction in Venice,” Hamilton said. “Lucky Red has a proven track record with interesting films like this one.”

Wilde Salome will be part of Arclight Films’ slate at this week’s American Film Market in Santa Monica.
