It was announced today over at Variety that Relativity Media are opting to distribute The Dark Fields themselves rather then leave that task to Universal. This move comes courtesy of Relativity’s recent acquisition of Overture Films’ distribution and marketing operation.
The film follows a down-and-out writer who gets his hands on a top secret pharmaceutical drug that makes one smarter. He experiences sudden financial and social success but soon discovers that the drug has lethal and lasting side effects. Before long, mysterious antagonists are pursuing him. Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Abbie Cornish and Anna Friel all star!
