UNIVERSAL TO DISTRIBUTE KRISTEN STEWART'S 'PERSONAL SHOPPER' IN VARIOUS MARKETS
Universal Pictures is set to distribute Kristen Stewart's Personal Shopper in international markets, according to Variety.
"Scandinavia, Latin America and Eastern Europe are among the regions where Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Content Group will distribute the film next year. It will be made available in movie theaters, on DVD, via digital download and TV."
Stewart reunites with Clouds of Sils Maria director Oliver Assayas. Stewart became the first American actress to win the Cesar, the French equivalent to the Oscar, for the film.
Personal Shopper received a nearly 5-minute standing ovation when it premiered at Cannes with the Best Director award going to Assayas.
Personal Shopper is about a young American Woman in Paris played by Stewart, "who makes her living as the personal shopper for a celebrity. In the backdrop, Maureen starts to suspect she may possess psychic powers like those of her recently deceased brother when she starts receiving messages from an ambiguous source."
No U.S. distributor or release date has been announced to date.
