The Weinstein Company has acquired distribution rights to a Kazakh film titled "Nomad."

Taking a different move from other film studio, The Weinstein Company has surprisingly obtained rights to a Kazakh movie entitled "Nomad" to distribute it in North America as well as in Australian, New Zealand and South Africa. Already encountered its premiere at Locarno International Film Festival, the picture was originally funded in its entirety by the Kazakh government which has provided a $35 million budget for the production.

Helmed by three directors, "Nomad" takes place in 18th century Kazakhstan and tells the story of a boy who is envisioned to unite the Kazakhs and bring glorious victory against their enemy. Cast consists of a mix of North American and Kazakh stars, including Jay Hernandez, Jason Scott Lee, Kuno Becker, Dilnaz Akhmadieva, and Ayana Yesmagambetova.

Noticed for his role in "Crazy/Beautiful" (2001), Hernandez is last seen on the big screen playing a backpacker trapped in an increasingly sinister situation in "Hostel." His next film, "World Trade Center", which is also starred Nicolas Cage and Maria Bello, opens nationally on Wednesday, August 9.
