No, Tony, perhaps I did not emphasize it enough for you. The Weinstein Company, it is my understanding, will distribute FADE TO BLACK this Spring.
Nathaniel Parker's webmistress confirms that information in a later post, dated November 5, 2006:
"As I've been promising you to keep you updated on the further developments of the distribution of Fade To Black, I thought it would be fitting to give you an update on the latest rumours that are spreading from an insider website. The Australian based online site Dark Horizons published a news bit on Friday, informing us that Fade To Black has found two distributors.
"The Weinstein Company will take over the US market while MGM will be in charge of worldwide distribution. The Weinstein Company announced a distribution pact with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in March 2006.
"The online service also published the news that "Fade to Black" is scheduled for a spring release. Among other movies, The Weinstein Company plans to release the following films over the next couple of months: Bobby (November 2006), Breaking and Entering (December 2006, with Miramax Films), Virgin Territory (January 2007), The Last Legion (January 2007), Young Hannibal: Behind the Mask (February 2007), TMNT (March 2007, with Warner Bros. Pictures and Imagi Animation Studios), Grind House (April 2007), Sin City 2 (2007), Hood vs. Evil (2007), Black Hole (2008) and Quelques jours en septembre (TBA)."
She may be talking through her hat, but she seems pretty definite, and she gives a source.
