We have confirmed that Fantastic Mr. Fox will be released and distributed by the Fox Searchlight division of Fox. Searchlight has focused on “indie” and art house films.
Fox Searchlight distributed Wes’ last film The Darjeeling Limited. Other recent Searchlight films include Slumdog Millionaire (2008), Juno (2007), and Little Miss Sunshine (2006).
Very exciting for everyone over at Fox Searchlight!
