'Eichmann' to get U.S. distribution

October theatrical release targeted

Regent Releasing and Here Media have acquired North American distribution rights to Robert Young's docudrama "Eichmann" from U.K.- based production outfit Entertainment Motion Pictures (E-Motion). An October 2009 theatrical release is planned.

"Eichmann" stars Thomas Kretschmann as Adolf Eichmann; Troy Garity as Avner Less, the Jewish officer who interrogates him; and Franka Potente as Avner's wife.

The film was produced by E-Motion's Peter Bevan and Karl Richards.

The acquisition was negotiated by Regent's Mark Reinhart and James Shavick, and Kent Walwin and Karl Richards on behalf of E-Motion.
