New Yorker worships ‘Satan’

Distributor snags U.S. right to Dumont film

New Yorker Films has picked up U.S. rights to “Outside Satan (Hors Satan),” the latest from Belgian filmmaker Bruno Dumont.

“Outside Satan” preemed in 2011 as part of the Un Certain Regard lineup at Cannes, which has previously awarded prizes to past Dumont pics “L’Humanite” and “Flanders.” Film stars David Dewaele and Alexandra Lematre  in the artsy, quasi-spiritual tale of a poacher, a farm girl and a string of violent deaths.

Distribution deal for the film — produced by Jean Brehat, Rachid Bouchareb and Muriel Merlin for 3B Prods. – was pacted by New Yorker with Pyramide Intl.

Gotham-based distributor aims to release “Outside Satan” in U.S. theaters in early 2013, to be followed by DVD and VOD.
