Paladin has built a modest slate of art-house indies. Paladin’s first release Disgrace, based on the J.M. Coetzee novel and starring John Malkovich, will open in NY on September 18, expanding to other key markets on September 25. Opening in November is Brant Serson's SXSW comedy Splinterheads, starring Thomas Middleditch and Rachael Taylor. And Bette Gordon's Tribeca entry Handsome Harry, starring Jamey Sheridan, Steve Buscemi and Aidan Quinn, will open in early 2010.
Urman has reunited at Paladin with two former ThinkFilm execs, Amanda Sherwin (marketing head) and Michael Tuckman (theatrical sales).
