A New York-based journalist told me two days ago that Magnolia Pictures, the theatrical arm of Mark Cuban‘s 2929 corporation, has acquired U.S. distribution rights to Steven Soderbergh‘s Che, and that “they’re moving ahead with a fall release and are making bookings right now.” (He also said something about Che being “booked into the Zeigfeld,” but that’s apparently a New York Film Festival thing.) Okay, I said to myself. Sounds plausible. But when I asked indie distribution execs Bingham Ray, Jonathan Sehring and M.J. Peckos if they’ve heard anything about this, they all said no.
