Wolfe Releasing
has acquired all U.S. rights to gay filmmaker Thom
Fitzgerald's 3 Needles, a look at the worldwide
AIDS crisis, starring Lucy Liu, Chloë Sevigny, Stockard
Channing, Olympia Dukakis, and Sandra Oh. The film covers
aspects of the crisis in rural China, a South African
plantation, and Montreal's porn world. Wolfe is
distributing the director's cut of the film—which is
markedly different from the version released theatrically in
Canada—which will reach theaters in the fall
and video stores by summer 2007. (Reuters)
