NEW YORK (AP) - Christopher Plummer’s haunting portrayal of John Barrymore is being given a new audience.

Producers said Tuesday that the film “Barrymore” will be shown at cinemas in Canada beginning in May and throughout the United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and other countries in October.

Barrymore” _ a two-person play exploring the life of famed actor John Barrymore _ earned Plummer a Tony in 1997. Last year, the actor recreated his performance for multiple high-definition cameras.

It was filmed over seven days on location and on the stage at the Elgin Theater in Toronto. Based on the play by William Luce, the film is directed and adapted for the screen by Erik Canuel.

Plummer recently won an Oscar for the romantic comedy “Beginners.”
