Exclusive: Phase 4 Films acquired North American rights to A Night In Old Mexico, the Emilio Aragon-directed film that stars Robert Duvall. The film will be released in May, shortly after making its debut at the upcoming South by Southwest Film Festival.

You’ve got to love a show that gets stronger over time… or at least gets higher ratings, and since that’s exactly the case with Syfy‘s Haven, fans can relax for quite a while. The network has ordered 26 new episodes, and they will air as a split fifth season. 13 will air in the fall, and the remaining 13 will air sometime in 2015.
