CBS Films Scoops Up Julian Schnabel Van Gogh Pic with Willem Dafoe

CBS Films has picked up the U.S. distribution rights to At Eternity’s Gate, the Julian Schnabel-directed Vincent Van Gogh biopic starring Willem Dafoe.

The film explores Van Gogh’s short but explosive painting career as well as his spiral into depression that end in the celebrated artist taking his own life. The film also stars Oscar Isaac, Mads Mikkelsen (earning raves for his film Arctic at Cannes) and Rupert Friend.

The script was written by Schnabel, an artist himself, and Jean-Claude Carrière. Schnabel was nominated for a Best Director Oscar for 2007’s The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Dafoe is a three-time Oscar nominee including just this year for The Florida Project.

Recent CBS Films releases have included the Best Picture Oscar-nominated Hell or High Water, Patriots Day and Inside Llewyn Davis.

No release date has been set yet but I have Dafoe in my top 5 for Best Actor just in case.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
