IFC Films and Tartan Films have picked up North American and U.K. distribution rights respectively to FilmFour's "Brothers of the Head," directed by Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe. The film premiered at this year's Toronto International Film Festival and IFC Films is planning a July release. "Brothers of the Head" is centered on the odyssey of conjoined twins Tom and Barry Howe who were plucked from obscurity by a 1970s music promoter and groomed into a boy band. Grappling with impossible love, artistic rivalry, and a dark inner life, the twins embrace their freakishness and spit it back in the form of searing punk rock. The North American deal marks a further collaboration between U.K.-based FilmFour and IFC following their recent teaming on Miranda July's award-winning "Me and You and Everyone We Know" and on the upcoming "Deep Water." IFC Films released the filmmakers prior film, "Lost in La Mancha." [Brian Brooks]
