Pic stars Rutger Hauer, Tammar Hassan

LONDON — Brit indie distrib Metrodome Distribution has acquired U.K. and Ireland rights to helmer-scribe Neil Jones’ horror pic “The Reverend,” starring Rutger Hauer and Tammar Hassan.

Pic, which will have a limited theatrical run in Blighty from Aug. 3, follows an alcoholic trying to put aside bitter family arguments before it is too late.

Deal was negotiated by Metrodome head of acquisitions Joel Kennedy, acquisitions manager Giles Edwards and the film’s producers Jones and Stuart Brennan.

Metrodome will also release Norwegian pic “Jackpot,” based on Jo Nesbo’s book, and Viggo Mortensen thriller “Everybody Has a Plan” this year.
