Lionsgate's Codeblack Films Picks Up 'Frankie & Alice' Starring Halle Berry
Lionsgate's Codeblack Films has acquired North American distribution rights to Halle Berry-starrer Frankie & Alice. The film will open in theaters on April 4, 2014.
Berry stars as an exotic dancer dealing with multiple personality disorder in the project, which also stars Stellan Skarsgard, Phylicia Rashad and Chandra Wilson.
Berry also produced the film, along with Vincent Cirrincione.
Directed by Geoffrey Sax, Frankie & Alice opened in a limited release on December 10, 2010, for an awards run. Berry was nominated for a Golden Globe for best actress for her performance.
THR reviewed the film at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival market, with critic Duane Byrge writing: "Overall, Frankie & Alice is a well-wrought psychological drama that delves into the dark side of one woman's psyche."
Codeblack Films general manager Quincy Newell negotiated the film acquisition with David B. Strapko of 37 Star Media Fund Corp. and Stephanie Denton of New Cadence Entertainment.
“Halle Berry delivers a spellbinding performance in Frankie & Alice,” said Codeblack Films president Jeff Clanagan. “Codeblack is thrilled to bring this important film to theaters nationwide delivering on our commitment to bring more quality films to the marketplace.”
Superhero sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier and crime drama Dom Hemingway are also slated to open in theaters on April 4, 2014.
