Weinstein Co., Scorsese team on ‘Easy Money’

The Weinstein Co. and Martin Scorsese are partnering to release Swedish crime drama “Easy Money” via a platform rollout starting July 11 in New York and July 13 in L.A.

“Easy Money,” from helmer Daniel Espinosa, tells three interweaving stories involving a Swedish drug-trafficking ring. Pic stars Joel Kinnaman (TV’s “The Killing”), along with Matias Varela, Dragomir Mrsic, Dejan Cukic and Fares Fares.

“I was deeply impressed by (the film) — by the harsh, elemental style, which reflects the milieu and the lives of the characters,” Scorsese said. “‘Easy Money’ is a tough story and a film to be reckoned with.”

Sweden-native Espinosa, who previously helmed Denzel Washington starrer “Safe House” for Universal, added: “It’s an honor for me that Harvey Weinstein and Martin Scorsese have embraced ‘Easy Money’ and share my passion for storytelling. I couldn’t imagine this film being in better hands for its U.S. debut.”

TWC plans to broaden the pic throughout the U.S. during late summer, though no specific dates have been set.
