Is there any word on how the implosion of New Yorker Films will affect the U.S. release of Nuri Bilge Ceylan‘s Three Monkeys? Eugene Hernandez‘s Indiewire piece, posted four or five hours ago, doesn’t say if existing bookings will be honored or if someone other distributor will step in and take over. Here‘s my Cannes 2008 review.

Update: HE friend & correspondent Nick Dawson has been told that New Yorker “was handling the film as part of a service deal, so the release of the film won’t be affected by the shuttering of New Yorker Films. Apparently plans on a new release will be announced in the coming weeks.”
