Lionsgate Studio , like other Hollywood companies before , has suspended the releases of its films in Russia.
Their closest picture in the country was to be The Unbearable Weight of a Great Talent, a comedy starring Nicolas Cage and Pedro Pascal . In Russia, Lionsgate works with Central Partnership , which still has an exclusive contract for the release of Paramount films .
However, Pavel Vereshchagin , the head of the TsP film distribution , noted that the studios “regret what is happening” and are counting on a return:
Lionsgate is engaged in such series as The Hunger Games and John Wick , and the three parts of the last franchise in Russia are almost 1 billion rubles. Another hit of the studio in the country was the detective “Knives Out” , and Lionsgate is also engaged in the film adaptation of Borderlands .
