Music Box Films "Alleluia"

Music Box, the Chicag-based arthouse distribution company, has picked up the U.S. rights to upcoming Belgian horror film "Alleluia," reports Variety. 

Director Fabrice du Welz premiered "Alleluia" at The 2014 Cannes Film Festival as part of the Directors' Fortnight section. The film follows a single mother and a gigolo who meet on a dating site and embark on a dark and passionate relationship. The movie is loosely inspired by the story of Martha Beck and Raymond Fernandez, which made headlines in the late 40's.

"Music Box" also handles distribution for "Ida" and "Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas."

"Alleluia" will play at the Karlovy Film Festival on July 4th. A U.S. release date has yet to be announced.
