It looks like we'll have to wait until next year to see the biggest film production Arkansas's seen in decades on the big screen. Jeff Nichols' "Mud" is in negotations to be distributed by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions. They plan to release the film next year, according to Indiewire.
Here's what the distributor had to say about the deal:
"'Mud' is a riveting mystery thriller set in American river country with a stellar cast by one of our greatest new cinematic voices, Jeff Nichols and top specialty film producers Everest Entertainment," said Howard Cohen, Roadside co-president on behalf of the Lionsgate/Roadside partnership. "We see it very much in keeping with films like 'Margin Call' and the upcoming 'Arbitrage,' which are quality, commercial, performance-driven films that benefit from the unique partnership of Lionsgate and Roadside, where we can each shine in our respective media."
