IFC Releasing has picked up “Finishing the Game” and “Savage Grace” for domestic release reports the trades.
“Finishing” sends up stereotypes and martial-arts pics by envisioning how Bruce Lee’s final film, “Game of Death,” might have ended up had it been recast and completed after the star’s death. Director Justin Lin (“Better Luck Tomorrow,” “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift”) helmed the feature which is scheduled for an October release in theaters and on VOD.
Julianne Moore stars in the Tom Kalin-directed “Savage Grace” which premiered in Cannes. The story is a dramatization of the shocking Barbara Daly Baekeland murder case in which the unstable wealthy socialite was killed by her 25-year-old gay son with whom she’d been having an incestuous sexual relationship.
