Indiewire By Indiewire | Indiewire September 4, 2008 at 5:16AM

Samuel Goldwyn Films has picked up U.S. rights to Rachel Samuels' "Dark Streets," for a planned release in the fourth quarter of the year. Peter Goldwyn, vice president of acquisitions negotiated the deal with Shaun Redick at The Collective on behalf of the filmmakers. Set in the 1930s, the film is the story of a "dashing but naive playboy who owns the hottest nightclub in town. Surrounded by the blues music he adores, and caught in a love triangle between two beautiful singers, he is the envy of every man; until, his charmed life starts to spiral out of control. As he is drawn deeper into a web of lies and betrayal, he no longer knows who to trust and who to fear." "We're excited to release a film in which stunning blues musical production numbers are an integral part; propelling the mood and pacing of the story," commented Samuel Goldwyn president Meyer Gottlieb in a statement. "Audiences will be simply blown away by the soundtrack which is sure to be an Awards' contender with the caliber of artists involved." [Brian Brooks]
