Updated: Sony Pictures Classics acquires Kill Your Darlings

Sony Pictures Classics has announced that they have acquired all US, Australian, New Zealand, South African, African TV, and Eastern European (minus CIS which has already been sold) rights to Kill Your Darlings.

Update: 7th June 2013. Sony Pictures annouced via Twitter that the release date of Kill Your Darlings will be 18th October in NY and LA.

Via @SonyClassics:
Official announcement! KILL YOUR DARLINGS starring Daniel Radcliffe & @danedehaan will open in NY & LA October 18th, soon after nationwide!
From their press release:
KILL YOUR DARLINGS is produced by Krokidas, Benaroya Pictures’ Michael Benaroya, Christine Vachon of Killer Films and Rose Ganguzza and is executive produced by Benaroya Pictures’ Head of Production Joe Jenckes, Stefan Sonnenfeld, Jared Ian Goldman, Killer Films’ Pamela Koffler, and Randy Manis.

The film is the previously untold story of a murder that brought together a young Allen Ginsberg (Radcliffe), Jack Kerouac (Huston) and William Burroughs (Foster) at Columbia University in 1944, providing the spark that would lead to their Beat Revolution.

“To be considered amongst the ranks of Pedro Almodóvar and Woody Allen is beyond my wildest dreams,” said Krokidas. “Sony Pictures Classics is truly the perfect place for this film. This is a dream come true.”

Sony Pictures Classics adds, “This is an amazing movie, a great American drama, thriller, and perfect evocation of New York in the 1940′s as you have never seen on screen before. With an ensemble cast that is truly mind-blowing led by Daniel Radcliffe in a profoundly moving performance as Allen Ginsberg, we are witnessing the birth of a major new American filmmaker. Producers Michael Benaroya and Christine Vachon have truly outdone themselves here. It is a privilege to bring a film that works on so many levels to American audiences.”
KILL YOUR DARLINGS was negotiated by SPC and UTA’s Rena Ronson along with Cassian Elwes.

France? no I haven't heard about a release date or distributor for France. As for Italy, according to IMDB the date I posted here on the comments earlier in June (via IMDB) isn't the official date.
