The Anthony Hopkins-directed feature “Slipstream” will be distributed domestically by Strand Releasing and on home video through Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisition Group.
The genre-mixing feature, starring Hopkins, Christian Slater, John Turturro, Michael Clarke Duncan and Camryn Manheim, centers on a murder-mystery screenwriter (Hopkins) whose characters begin coming to life as his life blurs with his screenplay. His brain begins to implode, captured in the film through a nonlinear, hallucinogenic narrative.
Stella Arroyave and Robert Katz produced the film from Hopkins’ original script, which marks his screenwriting debut. Strand plans a limited release beginning Oct. 26, followed by a Sony DVD release next year.
Hopkins recently received a special directing and acting prize for “Slipstream” at the Locarno International Film Festival.
Strand has partnered with SPWAG on several acquisitions. The company’s current slate includes “Syndromes and a Century” and “Lights in the Dusk.”
