LOS ANGELES, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- New Films International says it has acquired the worldwide rights to Christopher B. Landon's "Burning Palms," an edgy comedy set in Los Angeles.

Starring Zoe Saldana, Dylan McDermott, Paz Vega and Rosamund Pike, the film interlaces five stories set in different Los Angeles neighborhoods where no taboo is left unexplored as each character careens toward a dark and often comic fate, the producers said in a synopsis released Wednesday.

"We are excited to be distributing 'Burning Palms' worldwide and we are planning the U.S. theatrical release for early 2011," Nesim Hason, president of New Films International and New Films Cinema, said in a statement.

"'Burning Palms' is a smart, independent, cast-driven film that we expect will be a breakout film in the United States theatrically and deliver in the international marketplace," added Ron Gell, New Films chief content officer.
