‘Angels’ fly with Krevoy

MPCA picks up Toronto screener by O'Fallon

TORONTO — The CineTel Films’ drama “A Rumor of Angels” has been acquired for North American distribution by Brad Krevoy’s Motion Picture Corp. of America, which will release the film theatrically later this year through its arrangement with MGM.

Pic, which stars Vanessa Redgrave, Ray Liotta, Catherine McCormack and Trevor Morgan, screened Friday in the Toronto Film Festival’s Contemporary World Cinema section.

Directed by Peter O’Fallon (“Suicide Kings”), the film concerns the relationship between a young boy and a cantankerous elderly woman who helps him deal with the death of his mother. James Eric, Jamie Horton and O’Fallon wrote the pic, which was produced by Lisa Hansen, Paul Hertzberg and Peter O’Fallon. John Hamilton was the executive producer.

Morgan, who plays the young boy, stars in the upcoming “Jurassic Park 3.”

‘In good hands’

“We have had a long relationship with Brad and his company and know that the marketing and distribution of the film is in good hands with MGM and MPCA,” said Paul Hertzberg, president of CineTel Films.

“We feel there is a strong domestic audience for the film, and I’m delighted that we have been able to finalize our deal with CineTel,” Krevoy said.

Shot in Nova Scotia last year, the film is expected to see release before the end of the year in order to qualify for Academy Award consideration.
