Wolfe Releasing has acquired all U.S. rights to Thom Fitzgerald's 3 Needles, a look at the worldwide AIDS crisis, starring Lucy Liu, Chloe Sevigny, Stockard Channing, Olympia Dukakis, Sandra Oh and Shawn Ashmore. says The Hollywood Reporter,

The film covers aspects of the crisis in rural China, a South African plantation and Montreal's porn world. Wolfe is distributing the director's cut, which restores 20 minutes of footage from the Montreal section and reconfigures the three-part structure changed at the Canadian distributor's request before the film was shown at last year's Toronto International Film Festival.

The film reaches theaters in the fall and video stores by summer 2007.
