‘Ghost Writer’ to open Feb. 19

Roman Polanski thriller gets U.S. release date

Summit Entertainment will open Roman Polanski’s thriller “The Ghost Writer” in a limited run on Feb. 19.

Polanski has been finishing up the film while under house arrest in Switzerland.

Toplining Ewan McGregor and Pierce Brosnan, “Ghost Writer” is based on Robert Harris novel “The Ghost.” Summit said the film’s run will be expanded on March 5 and again on March 19.

Summit acquired North American distribution rights to the pic last month. Company is also acting as foreign sales agent.

Pic is a French-German-British co-production of RP Films 11, Babelsberg Film and Runteam III.

Polanski is awaiting determination of his extradition status in connection with the 1977 child sex case.
