Cannes: Sony Classics Nabs Jim Jarmusch's 'Only Lovers Left Alive'
The drama is set to debut in competition at the festival on Saturday.
Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all North American rights to Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, which will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday in the competition section.
The film was produced by Jeremy Thomas of Recorded Picture Company and Reinhard Brundig of Pandora Film. Christos Konstantakopoulos of Fairilo House served as executive producer.
The film, a vampire love story, features Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska (Albert Nobbs) and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek).
"It would take a stake through the heart to keep Barker, Bernard and Leiner away from a good movie,” said Jeremy Thomas about Sony Pictures Classics' co-presidents Michael Barker and Tom Bernard, and executive vp Dylan Leiner, in a statement.
