Indie vet Mark Urman, former ThinkFilm and Senator exec, has wasted no time returning to the depleted indie distribution ranks. In July he formed Paladin, and will be hunting for pick-ups in Toronto. His latest pick-up debuted at last year's festival--Tennesee Williams' 20s romance Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Ellen Burstyn and Ann-Margret, will open in NY and LA in December.

Indie vet Mark Urman, former ThinkFilm and Senator exec, has wasted no time returning to the depleted indie distribution ranks. In July he formed Paladin, and will be hunting for pick-ups in Toronto. His latest pick-up debuted at last year's festival--Tennesee Williams' 20s romance Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Ellen Burstyn and Ann-Margret, will open in NY and LA in December.

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).
