The studio had acquired domestic rights to the film, which is now without a date, last summer. Sean McNamara directed the medieval-set pic starring William Hurt, Benjamin Walker, Kaya Scodelario, Pablo Schreiber and Fan Bingbing.
In the film, Brosnan portrays King Louis XIV, whose quest for immortality leads him to capture and steal the life force of a mermaid. His plans are complicated by his daughter, who befriends the creature and defies the most powerful monarch on earth.
“Same Kind of Different as Me” is based on the book by Denver Moore, Lynn Vincent and Ron Hall. Michael Carney makes his feature directorial debut. Disruption’s Mary Parent and Cale Boyter are producing.
