Samuel Goldwyn Films Snags Russia's Oscar Contender 'The Edge'
The foreign-language film is directed by Alexey Uchitel and written by Alexander Gonorovsky.
Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired all U.S. rights to The Edge, Russia’s submission for the foreign-language film Oscar.
The feature, set in a Siberian gulag after the end of Word War II, also is nominated for a Golden Globe as best foreign-language film.
Directed by Alexey Uchitel and written by Alexander Gonorovsky, Edge was produced by Konstantin Ernst. Goldwyn will release the film theatrically this spring.
“Alexey has done an incredible job with Alexander’s script, and American audiences are in for a real adventure,” Goldwyn president Meyer Gottlieb said.
The deal was negotiated by Gottlieb and Sergei Bespalov, president of Sun Rise Films.
