For a film that has been collecting dust for years, no surprise that Adrien Brody and Penelope Cruz's "Manolete" aka "Blood & Passion" (in Canada) and now "A Madator's Mistress" is going straight to VOD.

Variety reports that Gravitas Ventures will release the film to VOD in June. Sitting around since 2007, and having avoided the film festival route instead being shilled at various worldwide marketplaces (hence the various titles), the film tells the story of Spain's most famous and revered bullfighter Manuel ‘Manolete’ Rodriguez (Brody) and his love for the actress and socialite Lupe Sino (Cruz). The film has already been released in various places, and it went straight-to-DVD in Canada under the aforementioned title "Blood & Passion" so if you're just dying to see it you can just go ahead and order it.

For everyone else, "The Matador's Mistress" will be available in June to order on your TV. Check out a sizzle reel from the film below.
