Spokane will be represented at the Cannes Film Festival on the French Riviera on Monday.
That’s the day that “The River Sorrow,” filmed in Spokane by North by Northwest, will have its European premiere and an after-party in a giant tent on the beach.
Star Christian Slater will be there, along with director Rich Cowan of North by Northwest. It also stars Ray Liotta and Ving Rhames. This murder mystery/thriller has already been picked up by Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions.
An American release date is scheduled later this summer, but that could change depending on how well the movie is received at Cannes.
We're expecting Cowan to check in with updates-- unless his head has been turned by sun and stars.
