Sundance 2011: HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN Purchased Before The Fest

Hobo With A Shotgun is premiering at Sundance and it is one of the lucky films to have already scored a distribution deal.

Alliance Films has joined with Rhombus Media to produce the film, which will not be released by Magnolia Pictures in the United States. 
Alliance Films and Rhombus Media have partnered on films such as The Red Violin andBlindness previously. Hobo With A Shotgun is the second film (Machete was the first) to hit theaters based on the trailers in the Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriquez double feature Grindhouse. There have no dates announced yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
Alliance Films also had this to say about their other deals:

“Alliance Films has made a number of acquisitions in advance of Sundance on titles such as: Dito Montiel’s feature THE SON OF NO ONE, starring Channing Tatum and Al Pacino for Canada and Spain (Aurum); THE TROLL HUNTER from director Andre Oderval for Canada and the UK (Momentum Pictures); THE GUARD which stars Brendan Gleason and Don Cheadle for Canada; and from the writers of THE HANGOVER, Jon Lucas and Scott Moore’s FLYPAPER, directed by Rob Minkoff starring Patrick Dempsey and Ashley Judd for Spain (Aurum).

Current and upcoming films where Alliance Films has an equity position or otherwise enabled projects to be financed include: THE KING’S SPEECH, SAFE, AREA 51, GOON, WEEKENDER, and THE BAY.”

I am very happy to hear that this film will actually make it to big screens. What are your thoughts of the news?
