*Remember the Halle Berry film “Frankie and Alice” that was supposed to open in 2010, but never came out?
Berry plays as a woman with multiple personality disorder who struggles to cope with her disease. The film debuted at Cannes in 2010 and screened the same year at AFI, but it was never picked up for North American distribution.
Now, three years later, Lionsgate label Codeblack Films announces it has purchased North American rights to the film and will put it in theaters on April 4, 2014, according to Deadline.com.
Stellan Skarsgard, Phylicia Rashad and Chandra Wilson co-star and Geoffrey Sax directed.
Codeblack, which focuses on features for the African American market, teamed in July with Summit Entertainment and Hartbeat Productions to release the concert film “Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain,” which has grossed $32.4 million to date.
As previously reported, Codeblack also just made a deal for rights to the “Flyy Girl” book trilogy written by New York Times bestselling author Omar Tyree, and has films in the works including suspense thriller “Repentance” starring Forest Whitaker, Anthony Mackie and Sanaa Lathan; romantic drama “Things Never Said” starring Omari Hardwick and Shanola Hampton; and “The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister & Pete” starring Jennifer Hudson.
