Director Abel Ferrara's long-delayed comedy GO GO TALES is inching closer to a U.S. cinema release after distributor JAY KUBASSEK stepped in to free the movie from its legal mess.
The film, about a New York cabaret starring Willem Dafoe, Matthew Modine and Asia Argento, has been at the centre of a legal battle between Ferrara and two former business partners, who claim they should have been credited for helping to write the screenplay.
The dispute has held Go Go Tales up for three years, but Kubassek is eager to put an end to the lawsuit against Ferrara and release the comedy via his company Aliquot Films.
He tells the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, "I have a top lawyer working on this and there is an imminent light at the end of the tunnel. I've seen it and it's terrific."
