Strand Releasing has picked up domestic distribution rights to the the Anthony Hopkins-directed feature “Slipstream” reports the trades.
The genre-mixing feature centers on a murder-mystery screenwriter (Hopkins) whose characters begin coming to life as his life blurs with his screenplay. His brain begins to implode, captured in the film through a nonlinear, hallucinogenic narrative.
Hopkins, Christian Slater, John Turturro, Michael Clarke Duncan and Camryn Manheim all star and Stella Arroyave and Robert Katz produced the film from Hopkins’ original script.
Strand plans a limited release beginning Oct. 26, followed by a Sony DVD release next year.
