Former Weinstein Co. movie Hotel Mumbai has found a new home at Bleecker Street before making its world premiere at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 7.
Bleecker Street, run by veteran indie exec Andrew Karpen, has acquired domestic rights to the film alongside ShivHans Pictures. The terrorist drama recounts the 2008 attacks at the Taj Mahal Palace in India.
Directed by Anthony Maras, the pic stars Dev Patel, Armie Hammer. Nazanin Boniadi, Anupam Ker, Tilda Cobham-Hervey, Jason Isaacs, Suhail Nayyar and Natasha Liu Bordizzo. Patel is also an executive producer of the film.
Hotel Mumbai was inspired by the documentary Surviving Mumbai. The film details the true events that took place during the devastating 2008 Mumbai attacks, during which an Islamic militant organization carried out a total of 12 shootings and bombings within the city.
Bleecker Street is planning a 2019 release.
