Cinedigm seeing ‘Violet’

Film stars Saoirse Ronan, Alexis Bledel as pop culture-obsessed assassins

Cinedigm Entertainment Group has acquired North American distribution rights to Geoffrey Fletcher’s “Violet & Daisy,” more than a year after its world premiere at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival.

Cinedigm plans a theatrical release for “Violet” next year with subsequent rollout across on-demand, digital and DVD.

Movie stars Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel as pop culture-obsessed assassins in New York City who accept what they think will be an easy job until an unexpected target, played by James Gandolfini, throws their plan into chaos.

The film is Fletcher’s directorial debut. He also produced with John Penotti and Bonnie Timmermann.

The filmmakers were represented in the negotiations by GreeneStreet Films and CAA, while Vincent Scordino repped Cinedigm.

It’s the second acquisition of a TIFF title within a week for Cinedigm, which announced Friday that it had bought all U.S. distribution rights to Dante Ariola’s “Arthur Newman” two months after the drama premiered at Toronto.
