Samurai Marathon US 2020

It’s official, Samurai Marathon will be released in US theaters in 2020. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Well Go USA Entertainment has acquired North American rights to Bernard Rose’s film.

“Samurai Marathon is such an engrossing, often moving film — there were times it was difficult to catch a breath,” Doris Pfardrescher, president and CEO of Well Go, said Tuesday in a statement. “Staying true to tradition while finding a place in the quickly modernizing and progressing world is a rather timely [theme], and we feel audiences in North America will connect to this story.”
