Summit Grabs Iraq Doc19 Nov, 2009 By: Chris Tribbey
Summit Entertainment has found a documentary about the Iraq war to pair with its fictional thriller about a bomb squad in the same conflict.
On Jan. 12 Summit will street both The Hurt Locker ($12 million domestic), with Jeremy Renner, Guy Pearce and Ralph Fiennes, and Brothers at War, a documentary about two brothers serving in the war, on DVD.
“Brothers at War is a powerful documentary which is a perfect compliment to The Hurt Locker,” said Steve Nickerson, Summit’s president of home entertainment. “The latter is a dramatization of the modern American soldier and combat in the 21st century, while the documentary tells a similar story, but with real people in very real situations.”
Brothers was directed by Jake Rademacher with Gary Sinise and David Scantling executive producing.
