The titles from the old Tartan Asia Extreme line include the Pang brothers' original 1999 Bangkok Dangerous and The Eye.
Here's a statement by Fortissimo co-chairman Michael J. Werner, as quoted by Variety:
We are very proud of these films and extremely happy Palisades’ wonderful team will be continuing to bring these films to UK film lovers."
According to Variety, Palisades "will continue to acquire titles from Fortissimo Films for its growing U.S. theatrical and video distribution unit as well."
Palisades Tartan has stated plans to boost its entire catalog to up to around 2,000 titles.
What's happened to a distribution deal for Pen-ek Ratanaruang's latest film, Ploy? Is that on the table? How about it, Fortissimo?
