iW NEWS | Keaton's "Gentleman" Heads To Lightning

Michael Keaton's "The Merry Gentleman" has found a home with Lightning Entertainment, which acquired the international distribution rights to the film. Starring Keaton and Kelly Macdonald, the film premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. It follows Kate (Mcdonald), who runs away to Chicago to find anonymity after her marriage implodes. The film will join Lightning's American Film Market slate. The Samuel Goldwyn Company is releasing "Merry Gentleman" theatrically in the U.S. in March 2009. [Peter Knegt]
