Official: Weinsteins, Myriad Carry Mother to the U.S.


Argento’s witch is going theatrical!

Myriad Pictures and The Weinstein Company are uniting to handle the North American distribution for Dario Argento’s Mother of Tears.

Contrary to previous reports coming out of the Toronto International Film Festival where “Tear” was recently screened and widely accepted, Anchor Bay is not involved.

Instead, Myriad Pictures will take on the role as Mother of Tears‘ North American theatrical distributor. TWC, meanwhile, will use their exclusive relationship with Genius Products to issue the third film in Argento’s “Three Mothers” trilogy on DVD.

In a statement issued by Myriad, Kirk D’Amico, President and CEO, said, “This time, it was about the passion that Harvey, Barry Gordon and the TWC team had for the film that got the deal closed. We look forward to Myriad handling the theatrical release alongside their expertise and experience on the DVD and rest of media side.”

Myriad intends to release the film theatrically in the U.S. and Canada sometime after the beginning of the new year.
