Duo makes it ‘Final’

Lions Gate, Cowboy team for Scott film

Lions Gate Films has partnered with Cowboy Pictures to acquire the U.S. distribution rights to “Final,” Campbell Scott’s solo directorial debut. Pic is skedded for a December release in Gotham followed by a national rollout in January and February.

The Denis Leary/Hope Davis starrer concerns a possibly delusional hospital patient who’s convinced he’s living in the year 2399.

Scott’s two previous efforts behind the camera were made with the help of a co-director, working with Stanley Tucci on “Big Night” in 1996 and with Eric Simonson on “Hamlet,” which screened on the Hallmark Channel last year.

Lions Gate and Cowboy will jointly coordinate publicity, marketing and distribution efforts with Spare Room Prods., Scott’s company with producer Mary Frances Budig, and InDigEnt, a digital video production outfit run by Gary Winick.

Lions Gate already has signed on to distribute the InDigEnt-produced “Tape,” directed by Richard Linklater and starring Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman and Robert Sean Leonard.

“Working in digital video was a first for Campbell and I, and we are thrilled that Cowboy and Lions Gate have embraced the film,” said Budig. “We have been extremely lucky from the beginning with partners like IFC and InDigEnt, and the addition of Cowboy continues our good fortune.”
