Weinstein Co., Scorsese team on ‘Easy Money’

Swedish pic from 'Safe House' director Daniel Espinosa

The Weinstein Co. and Martin Scorsese are partnering to release Swedish crime drama “Easy Money” via a platform rollout starting July 11 in New York and July 13 in L.A.

“Easy Money,” from helmer Daniel Espinosa, tells three interweaving stories involving a Swedish drug-trafficking ring. Pic stars Joel Kinnaman (TV’s “The Killing”), along with Matias Varela, Dragomir Mrsic, Dejan Cukic and Fares Fares.

“I was deeply impressed by (the film) — by the harsh, elemental style, which reflects the milieu and the lives of the characters,” Scorsese said. “‘Easy Money’ is a tough story and a film to be reckoned with.”

Sweden-native Espinosa, who previously helmed Denzel Washington starrer “Safe House” for Universal, added: “It’s an honor for me that Harvey Weinstein and Martin Scorsese have embraced ‘Easy Money’ and share my passion for storytelling. I couldn’t imagine this film being in better hands for its U.S. debut.”

TWC plans to broaden the pic throughout the U.S. during late summer, though no specific dates have been set.
