Fahrenheit 9/11: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Moore's incendiary documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, which had been looking for an American distributor, has found not one but three distribution entities eager to share in the movie's theatrical release.
The film is set to launch theatrically June 25 through a complicated distribution apparatus that will see Bob and Harvey Weinstein's newly formed Fellowship Adventure Group join forces with Lions Gate Films and IFC Films.
Showtime is taking pay-TV rights to "Fahrenheit" through its output deal with Lions Gate. The film's home entertainment rights have not yet been sewn up, though one source close to the film said that they could land with Universal Home Video.
Although plans have not yet been finalized -- and summer screens can be hard to come by -- "Fahrenheit" is expected to roll out on about 1,000 screens, sources said. The partners all declined comment on how the film's fees will be split.
