Metrodome takes ‘Warlords’ in U.K.

Pic earned $40 million in China

LONDON — U.K. indie Metrodome Distribution has acquired all U.K. rights to Chinese war epic “The Warlords.”

The big-budgeted, effects-laden Chinese pic, which toplines Jet Li and co-stars Takeshi Kaneshiro and Andy Lau, has taken $40 million on home turf.

A release late summer/early fall this year is planned.

The deal was handled for Metrodome by Peter Urie, CEO, Tom Stewart, general manager home entertainment, Kate Edwards, acquisitions and business affairs manager, and by Wayne Duband at Wayne Duband Consulting for Applause Pictures and Media Asia out of Hong Kong.

Metrodome’s 2008 release slate also includes Bruce Weber’s Oscar-nominated jazz documentary “Let’s Get Lost,” Neil Young’s tour film “CSNY Deja vu,” Santosh Sivan’s “Before the Rains” and French animation “Fear(s) of the Dark.”
