    "Factotum" Dropped From Picturehouse Slate

    Just a month before its U.S. premiere at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, Bent Hamer's "Factotum" has lost its theatrical distribution deal with Picturehouse.

But when asked if he worries whether he might, one day, stop being funny he says, "Well, no. Because if I wake up, I'm going to be funny, because it's me. It's not that I put on a thing to do it; I wake up in the morning and I can write. I roll out of bed and I can write; I can write - that's what I do, that's me. So it would have to be a complete personality change for that to happen." Em...
