Thinkfilm Lands Schrader’s Walker

ThinkFilm has acquired North American rights to Paul Schrader’s “The Walker” which premiered at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival.

Woody Harrelson plays a gay society walker who becomes involved in a Washington murder scandal. Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily Tomlin, Lauren Bacall, Willem Dafoe, Ned Beatty, Moritz Bleibtreu and Mary Beth Hurt also star.

Schrader directed from his original screenplay, and ThinkFilm will release the drama late this year to qualify for awards consideration.
