Indican Pictures acquired North American rights back in August to the late Ernest Borgnine’s final film The Man Who Shook The Hand Of Vicente Fernández, which will be released in LA on December 7. The date provides an awards-qualification behind Borgnine’s final performance; the Oscar-winner died in July at age 95. Elia Petridis wrote and directed the pic, about a stubborn man who becomes the hero of his nursing home upon leading the Latino staff in a revolt against the tyrannical owner. Barry Corbin, Carla Ortiz, Dale Dickey and Tony Plana co-star.
