The Conspirator debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2010. Director Robert Redford says he and his cast strived for accuracy to shed light on a little-known part of Abraham Lincoln's assassination.

Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have acquired distribution rights and are planning to release the film in spring of 2011.
