Paramount Pictures has acquired the overseas distribution rights to Kenneth Branagh's updated version of "Sleuth."

Kenneth Branagh needs not worry anymore about the future of his latest directorial work "Sleuth." The Hollywood Reporter has delightfully brought in good news that Paramount Pictures has finally obtained the rights to distribute the flick overseas in the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa regions.

An updated version of the 1972 thriller classic which was made based on Anthony Shaffer's Tony Award-winning play, the movie presents the story of an down-on-his-luck actor who matches wits with a wealthy writer after being found out to get involved in an affair with the man's wife. Jude Law plays the out-of-work actor while Michael Caine portrays the betrayed husband.

Script was penned by Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter, who marks his first screenwriting effort after a decade here, with Law also co-producing. Production on the film recently wrapped up at London's Twickenham Studios for Sony Pictures Classics to release in North America and Latin America by 2008.
