It looks like the new Montreal Filmfest just got left at the altar by a hot ass-kicking bounty hunter named Domino. Having just screened this flick I can tell you our French-Canadian folks are missing out. I’ll turn it over to Variety for the scoop;
The New Montreal FilmFest, which struggled to attract big-name films to its inaugural edition, has lost its only marquee title: New Line has yanked Tony Scott’s Keira Knightley starrer “Domino,” due to close the event on Sunday.
A New Line spokesman explained Monday that the fictionalized biography based on the life of the late bounty hunter Domino Harvey, daughter of thesp Laurence Harvey, had been given to the fest by its Canadian distributor.
However, as no talent is available to attend the fest, New Line decided there was no benefit to publicly screening the film so far in advance of its Oct. 14 commercial bow.
The good news is RopeofSilicon will have a full Domino feature in the near future! Stay tuned.
