Cannes: Patrick Stewart’s Grisly ‘Green Room’ Goes to Picturehouse-Altitude in U.K.

LONDON — Picturehouse Entertainment and Altitude Film Entertainment have jointly acquired the U.K. distribution rights to Jeremy Saulnier’s ultraviolent backwoods horror pic “Green Room,” which played in Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes. Pic stars Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots and Patrick Stewart.

The film centers on a group of punk rockers who have to escape the clutches of a neo-Nazi gang in Oregon. Variety‘s reviewer wrote: “This wilfully unpleasant midnight special further demonstrates its helmer’s machete-sharp sense of craft.”

Pic is produced by Neil Kopp, Anish Savjani and Victor Moyers for Broad Green Pictures and Filmscience.

Picturehouse released Saulnier’s “Blue Ruin” last May. “Green Room” marks the second joint acquisition by Picturehouse and Altitude after the purchase of Cedric Jimenez’s “The Connection” in Cannes last year. Picturehouse Entertainment is the distribution arm of Picturehouse Cinemas, which runs 22 theaters and programs a further 42 venues across the U.K.
