Devil in the Details for ThinkFilm

You heard it, um, deduced here first: Capitol Pictures, which last year snapped up the irascible indie ThinkFilm and underwrote Sidney Lumet's new thriller Before the Devil Knows You're Dead, consummated the syngergistic menage a trois Friday that officially brought the distrib and the film together for an Oct. 17 release. Gregg Goldstein, as usual, has the details at The Hollywood Reporter, including quotes from Lumet and an even more spirited than usual ThinkFilm boss Mark Urman:

"We waged a campaign to get this because it's a malevolent toy of a film with a true nest of vipers, very dark and nasty in cynical way, and fun in its structure. It's also connected in spirit to a lot of things Sidney has done, from Dog Day Afternoon to The Anderson Tapes. "

Now the question is whether or not the snakes plan a festival appearance prior to their fall debut; we've heard rumors of a New York Film Festival bow for a while now, but don't count out Telluride. Or both. Stay tuned...
