Skolimowski's feature is one of nine titles recently acquired by Tribeca Film. In addition to Essential Killing, their slate includes Philip Gelatt’s The Bleeding House; Vincent D'Onofrio’s directorial debut Don't Go in the Woods; Neds [+see also:

The latest projects by Agnieszka Holland and Lech Majewski also have good prospects for world distribution. Sony Pictures Classics, specialized in distribution of foreign-language films in the United States, bought the US rights to Holland's latest feature, In Darkness, a co-production between Poland, Germany, and Canada.
Sales agent Wide Management has sold Majewski's The Mill and the Cross [+see also:
