MGM will be the distributor of Werner Herzog's "Rescue Dawn" for all North American regions.

One more seemingly promising picture has gone down under MGM's wings. Chief operating officer Rick Sands has announced Saturday, September 9 that the company has successfully obtained all North American rights to "Rescue Dawn", the latest directorial work of prominent German filmmaker Werner Herzog starring Christian Bale.

The deal was reached after MGM's Scott Packman and Ayano Ichida negotiated with Adam W. Rosen of Rosen Feig Golland & Lunn on behalf of the filmmakers. Commenting on this successful attempt, Sands openly showed his delight. "We're very excited to be working with Herzog," so he said. "He is a legendary director, and he and Bale have brought this incredible and compelling story to the screen in a raw and emotional film."

Set for a December 2006 release in theaters, "Dawn" is based on the real-life account of German-born U.S pilot Dieter Dengler who led a daring escape from a POW camp in Vietnam with other captured prisoners only to find the jungles around them were just as dangerous. Also starring in the flick are Steve Zahn, Jeremy Davies, and Evan Jones, among others.
