Millennium Entertainment’s distribution arm will release “The Paperboy” in U.S. theaters on October 5.

The film – which got a 16-minute standing ovation after its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival last month – stars Matthew McConaughey, Nicole Kidman, Zac Efron, David Oyelowo, Macy Gray and John Cusack.

Millennium produced “The Paperboy” and had shopped the movie to other domestic buyers but ultimately decided to retain distribution duties.

An erotic thriller set in 1969, “The Paperboy” tells the story of a young man who returns to his small Florida hometown to help his reporter brother uncover the truth about a man on death row, who might have been wrongly convicted. In the process, he falls for the convict’s lover. Conflict, danger, deceit, seduction and betrayal ensue.

“I feel so blessed that Millennium will be releasing ‘The Paperboy’ in the U.S,” said Daniels. “They have been with me since the very beginning of this journey, and I know they will make sure this movie gets the best possible exposure. My amazing cast and crew worked so hard to make this project, and I am honored that Millennium will be bringing my movie to American audiences.”

“The Paperboy” is produced by Daniels, Avi Lerner, Ed Cathell III, Cassian Elwes and Hilary Shor. Executive producers are Danny Dimbort, Trevor Short, John Thompson, Boaz Davidson, Mark Gill and Jan DeBont. Daniel and Pete Dexter wrote the adapted script based on Dexter’s novel.

“Lee’s unique filmmaking voice combined with this high-profile cast makes for a must-see movie,” Millennium Entertainment CEO Bill Lee said. [Source]

    We can only hope that The Paperboy gets a wide release and not just opening in 2 or 3 little art theatres in just the big cities and nowhere else!!!!! That’s the problem with indie films……so many of them are really good but no one gets to see them! I want to see The Paperboy on the Big Screen in a theatre!!!!
