“Irreversible,” the film that’s been pissing off audiences around the world, has been picked up by Lions Gate for a limited NC-17 U.S. release sometime next year.
This acquisition took place shortly before the controversial film screened this month at the Toronto International Film Festival where director Gaspar Noe was said to have attended, escorted by guards. Good move on his part as previous screenings of “Irreversible” have left audience members screaming for his head on a stake. Seems that ten minute long rape scenes don’t bode well with the viewing public.
