Screen Media has picked up domestic rights with plans to release the movie in early 2020.
Turturro wrote, directed and stars in the film, which co-stars Bobby Cannavale and Audrey Tautou and follows a trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a surprising love story. But when they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, their journey becomes one of constant escape from the law.
Jon Hamm, Susan Sarandon and Pete Davidson also appear in the pic.
“It feels like a good time to release a transgressive film about the stupidity of men who try and fail and try better to understand and penetrate the mystery of women,” Turturro said Monday in a statement. “I look forward to working with Screen Media and bring our work and the character of the Jesus to American audiences.”
“It’s an honor to be working with John Turturro again,” said Seth Needle, senior vp acquisitions at Screen Media. “His passion for storytelling and character building is unparalleled, so it goes without saying that people should be excited for the Jesus.”
ICM Partners negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
