Even though Roman Polanski remains incarcerated in his luxurious Gstaad ski chalet, that isn’t stopping him from making moves. Polanski recently inked a distribution deal that will ensure the release of his latest motion picture in the US.

“The Ghost Writer,” Polanski’s latest thriller, will be distributed by Summit Entertainment.

If that name sounds oddly familiar to you, it’s probably because Summit Entertainment are the very same folks responsible for the craziness of the Twilight series. The distributor plans to release the Polanski film in the near future, likely sometime in the first half of 2010.

The embattled Polanski is currently cooped up in his ski chalet after being released from a Swiss jail on $4.5-million bail stemming from a 32-year-old statutory rape charge.
