Movie fans across the country will soon be able to enjoy another Oscar worthy performance by Geoffrey Rush, thanks to the recent acquisition of Rush’s latest film by cable operator Starz Entertainment. A license agreement was granted to STARZ for THE EYE OF THE STORM by Sycamore Entertainment. The film will be available to STARZ subscribers for two (2) years beginning in April 2013.
"We believe STARZ subscribers will be wowed by the performances in THE EYE OF THE STORM,” says Ed Sylvan, Sycamore President and CEO. "As an independent distributor it’s our job to sift through the more than 8500 films produced every year – of which less than 600 will ever get a distribution deal – so that we can bring the very best films and the true gems to movie fans everywhere."
THE EYE OF THE STORM is currently playing on Video on Demand and in select theaters across the United States. It will be available on DVD/Blu-ray January 29th, 2013.
