Excellent news of the most excellent type! (Also, it's a bit excellent.): It seems that indie distributor Main Street Films have picked up John Doe
for U.S. distribution, per an article tweeted by the film's screenwriter Steve Coates
! (Though we missed it for over a day since he didn't hashtag the link or mention what it was about... make a fanfare about that, Steve, it's big news! ;) ) Here's what we know so far:
- Main Street is a small distrib but it has some pretty interesting titles under its belt already, such as the latest version of Great Expectations w/ Ralph Fiennes and Helena Bonham Carter.
- There is NO release date set yet (boo), nor have the number of screens been determined (or the precise cities which will actually get the film, I would imagine), but they do state that in the deal a theatrical release of some kind is "guranteed."
- They are launching the film for industry types at the American Film Market in November, which means we more than likely won't be seeing it before then; hopefully Q1 of 2014 at least? We'll see.
In the meantime, here's something we tweeted out a while back; production company Ultra Films Ltd. posted some behind the scenes pics from John Doe
on their Facebook page; the top photo by Dennys Ilic is there, and you can see them all here
, but here's some more that feature Jamie...
Meanwhile, for those of you who didn't get to see Filly Brown
- in which Kerry has a small role and Jamie makes a brief cameo - the film is now out on DVD and Blu-Ray
! It's also available on a number of VOD platforms, here are those links: Cable On Demand, iTunes, VUDU, Amazon Instant, YouTube, Google Play
