Dinerstein joins new Liddell distrib

New outlet will release 'Killer Joe'

Liddell Entertainment is getting into the distribution game, forming a new label, LD Distribution, to be headed by indie distrib vet David Dinerstein.

L.A.-based startup plans to release four to six films, starting next year with three pics including William Friedkin’s “Killer Joe,” for which Liddell bought U.S. rights in September.

Other pics to go through LD Distribution include scarer “The Collection” and “Disconnect,” toplining Jason Bateman and Alexander Skarsgard.

“We’re trying to focus on having a diversified slate,” Dinerstein told Variety. “Some films may start out as a platform release, while others might have a wide release. We expect to take full advantage of every opportunity in the marketplace.”

Since its formation in 2006 by Mickey Liddell, Liddell Entertainment has partnered most often with Roadside Attractions to acquire and distribute product, including 2009 docu “Good Hair” and most recently Glenn Close period pic “Albert Nobbs,” dated for Jan. 27. The company also began partnering with Open Road Films earlier this year for such films as Liam Neeson-starrer “The Grey” and Elizabeth Olsen horror-thriller “Silent House,” both of which are skedded for release during first-quarter 2012.

Dinerstein, who recently managed the independent road show for Kevin Smith’s “Red State,” will also help manage the upcoming Roadside, Open Road releases.

Liddell aims to produce between four and six films a year, budgeted at $25 million or less.
