Week in Review: Cannes ’15 Pickups Coming Soon

While there’s a film festival going on in Cannes, so much of the festival and the buzz comes, like it is with Sundance, from purchases and pickups of many of the titles being screened there, and even those that aren’t. There are countless deals being struck, but we did our best to round up just a few of the more notable titles that will some day be arriving stateside.

First up, Gus Van Sant’s The Sea of Trees with Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe will be distributed in the U.S. by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions. Atom Egoyan’s Remember, starring Christopher Plummer, was picked up by A24. The comedy Geezer, starring Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, has been picked up by Hyde Park International. Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert with Nicole Kidman has been picked up by Atlas Distribution for a planned September release.
