The distributor has taken the Venice-bowing 'De Palma' for the U.K.

Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow's portrait of iconic filmmaker Brian De Palma has found a U.K. home.

StudioCanal announced Wednesday in Cannes that it has picked up De Palma, which had its world premiere at Venice last year.

The documentary sees Baumbach and Paltrow engage in a "personal and candid discussion" with the director of films such as Carrie, Scarface, The Untouchables and Carlito's Way.

According to the release, what emerges is a "funny, honest and incisive portrait of a truly one-of-a-kind artist, and an exhilarating behind-the-scenes look at the last 50 years of the film industry through the eyes of someone who has truly seen it all."

A24 has U.S. rights to De Palma, which is set to be released June 10.
