Tartan/TLA take Araki’s ‘Skin’

Heim adaptation stars Gordon-Levitt, Corbet, Shue

Tartan Films and TLA Releasing have jointly acquired North American rights to the Gregg Araki drama “Mysterious Skin,” which bowed at the Venice Intl. Film Festival.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“3rd Rock From the Sun,” “Manic”), Brady Corbet (“Thirteen”) and Elizabeth Shue star in the film, which Araki adapted from the novel by Scott Heim. “Mysterious Skin” is the story of two boys who grow up to be affected very differently by a similar traumatic event.

Film was produced by Mary Jane Skalski, Jeffrey Levy-Hinte and Araki. Fortissimo Films handles international sales on the pic, with Wouter Barendrecht and Michael J. Werner as exec producers.

Tartan’s MJ Peckos and John Sloss of Cinetic Media negotiated the deal. Tartan and TLA will release the film theatrically next May.

Recent Tartan releases include “Bush’s Brain” and Catherine Breillat’s “Anatomy of Hell.”
