The 2010 Halle Berry flick has finally found a home.
Frankie & Alice, the Halle Berry-starring psychological thriller about a woman with multiple personality disorder, will finally see the light of day. The flick has been picked up by the Lionsgate label Codeblack Films, according to Deadline. . The distribution company now owns the North American rights to the film and has the release date for April 4, 2014. The deal ends four rather turbulent years for Frankie & Alice, during which the flick struggled to find a home. It made its debut at Cannes in 2010 and was also presented at that year’s AFI Fest, but interest has dwindled since then.
The picture hasn't seen much interest since its debut.
Stellan Skarsgard, Phylicia Rashad and Chandra Wilson co-star in this Geoffrey Sax directed pic. As it so happens, Frankie & Alice has found a fitting home at Codeblack. The company tends to specialize in distributing films for the African American market and, again according to Deadline, has just closed the deal over the rights to the Flyy Girl book trilogy written by New York Times bestselling author Omar Tyree.
In addition to Berry’s name on the poster, the film does have a few things going for it. Audiences might be familiar with her co-star Skarsgard from his turn as Dr. Erik Selvig in Thor, The Avengers and the upcoming Thor: The Dark World. Meanwhile, Rashad was once a regular on The Cosby Show and Wilson is best known as Dr. Miranda Bailey on Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice.
