As you've no doubt noticed, news from Cannes is coming in fast and furious on a daily (almost hourly) basis so to keep things orderly, we're combining three bits of international distribution news into this one story. Films heading to Italy, the UK and France, and all over the world (excluding the UK, Australia and New Zealand) are Nurse 3D, Snowtown, and Tracey's Slumba Party.
There’s not a helluva lot more to report, but IMP Awards got their hands on the poster for Lake Mungo, the Australian film about a family mourning the loss of their 16-year-old daughter. Strange events start happening after her burial that force the family to take a hard look at what their little girl was into before she died.
I detected some rumblings about Lake Mungo during AFM but have yet to hear anything as to whether or not it’s any good. The Aussie film, which premiered under Darclight at AFM, is now being remade in the States by Paramount Vantage, according to THR this morning.
