Control has been picked up for North American distribution!

Here's the info straight from a bulletin the Joy Division myspace page sent out this morning:

The Weinstein Co. scored a triple play at the tail end of the Festival de Cannes, nabbing North American rights for Anton Corbijn's Joy Division biopic "Control," North American home video rights to Tom Shankland's detective thriller "Waz" and Australian rights to the animated "Persepolis."

"Control," the feature directorial debut of music video vet Corbijn, unspooled in the festival's Directors' Fortnight sidebar and earned three awards there: the CICAE Art & Essai prize for best film, the Regards Jeunes Prize for best first or second feature film and the Europa Cinemas Label prize for best European film. The black-and-white portrait of Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis, who committed suicide at age 23, stars Sam Riley and Samantha Morton.

First Independent Pictures and Wagner/Cuban Cos. were in serious negotiations to jointly acquire the film until late Thursday, but the Weinstein Co. stepped in and closed the deal Friday.
