Sony Pictures Classics will release Roman Polanski’s new film, Carnage, in North America, the studio announced Thursday.Polanski penned the script with the help of Yasmina Reza, who wrote the 2009 Tony Award winning play God of Carnage. Said Ben Said (The Witness) is producing the movie, which stars Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly. An end of year release is expected. Set in contemporary Brooklyn, New York, the story follows two pairs of parents, one of whose child has hurt the other at a public park. They meet to discuss the incident in a civilized manner, but as the evening goes on, the parents become increasingly childish, resulting in chaos. “In today’s world of moviemaking, Roman Polanski, his screenwriting partner Yasmina Reza, his cast, his crew, and his producer Said Ben Said represent the best of the best. We are so fortunate and pleased to bring Carnage, which promises to be an experience of intense emotion and hilarity, to the American audiences,” Sony Pictures Classics said in a statement. Said Ben Said and Sony Pictures Classics last worked together on the film I've Loved You So Long.
