According to AP, “A Prairie Home Companion” will be released next summer by Picturehouse Films after being bought for North American distribution when it was screened for buyers in New York. Picturehouse president Bob Berney said the film was hilarious and said that he saw potential for wide commercial success. “I was blown away. It was through the roof,” he said in a telephone interview. The Altman film, based on Garrison Keillor’s long-running radio program, was shot in St. Paul with a cast including Meryl Streep, Lindsay Lohan, Tommy Lee Jones, Woody Harrelson, Lily Tomlin and Kevin Kline. The working title was “The Last Broadcast,” but Berney, aiming to capitalize on the name recognition of the 31-year-old radio program, recommended that the title revert to “A Prairie Home Companion.”
