Terry Gilliam's Anticipated 'The Zero Theorem' Finally Lands US Distribution

Terry Gilliam's latest opus, "The Zero Theorem," has finally found a stateside home months after debuting at last year's Venice Film Festival to solid buzz. Amplify and Well Go USA Entertainment have teamed up to bring the film to US audiences. They will open the film theatrically in the late summer with a home video release to follow.

Here's their synopsis for the mind bender:

Directed by Gilliam, "The Zero Theorem" stars two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst.  Living in isolation in a burnt-out church, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life - or the lack thereof - once and for all.  Increasingly disturbed by unwanted visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), Management’s wunderkind son Bob (Lucas Hedges), his unpredictable colleague Joby (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), it’s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that he’s able to understand his own reason for being.

"For all of us at Amplify and Well Go, it’s an absolute dream to have the chance to work with a visionary like Terry," said Amplify’s Kent Sanderson. "As someone who wore out a VHS of 'Brazil' and saw 'Twelve Monkeys' in theaters three times, I can say on the whole team’s behalf that we’re incredibly excited to share his new take on society gone awry with the widest possible audience.”
