We're pretty stoked to see Neil Jordan's Byzantium since we're hearing it compares favorably to his Interview with the Vampire, and thanks to IFC, it looks like we'll be able to do so in theatres soon!

Deadline reports that the deal coming together is several million dollars in minimum guarantee and marketing commitment. While IFC has been heavy into multiplatform, this film has designs on a theatrical release broadening out to several hundred screens.

Byzantium, written by Moira Buffini and directed by Neil Jordan, stars Gemma Arterton, Saoirse Ronan, Caleb Landry Jones, Danny Mays, Jonny Lee Miller, Tom Hollander, Bradley James, and Sam Riley in the vampire flick wherein Arterton stars as Clara, a vampire who has to protect herself and her daughter (Ronan) from those seeking to plunge a stake through their hearts.

Synopsis

On the run for murder, two young "sisters" arrive penniless at an English seaside town. »
