Goldwyn sets 'Southland' release date


Samuel Goldwyn Films will release Richard Kelly's long-awaited "Southland Tales" in U.S. theaters on Nov. 9, 2007, in partnership with Destination Films and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group. Since the appearance of a work-in-progress print at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival, Kelly has been working on the movie, including adding a significant amount of visual effects. "The time and additional visual effects that were added have allowed me to achieve my original vision for 'Southland Tales,' " said Kelly, who will be appearing at Comic-Con International in San Diego to discuss the film. "The fans' response has been overwhelming and I anticipate that moviegoers will respond enthusiastically." Samuel Goldwyn, which distributed the Oscar-nominated "The Squid and the Whale," currently has "Goya's Ghosts" in theatres.
