iW NEWS | Belladonna Unveils Mickle's "Mulberry," "July" Deals

Rene Bastian, Linda Moran, and Adam Folk‘s Belladonna Productions has announced a pair of deals for projects by Jim Mickle. The filmmaker’s “Mulberry Street,” which had its North American premiere at SXSW in March and later screened at the Tribeca Film Festival, is set for theatrical distribution on 300 screens via the After Dark Horrorfest with LIONSGATE handling DVD distribution of the event’s eight films. Belladonna also announced that it has optioned Joe R. Lansdale‘s novel Cold in July for Mickle to direct and adapt with “Mulberry Street” co-writer Nick Domici. A graduate of film school at NYU, Mickle recently signed with UTA and the BenderSpink Management Company. “Mickle’s unrivaled knowledge and experience of the suspense and horror genre will serve this property well,” commented Moran, in a statement, “We have enormous faith in Jim to bring the story to the screen in a way that preserves the tone and intention of Lansdale’s’ novel.” For more information on the After Dark Horrorfest, visit the event’s website.
