A few more high-profile acquisitions at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival have taken place.
- The Way, Way Back – Fresh off a standing ovation at the film’s premiere, Fox Searchlight has picked up writers/directors Nat Faxon and Jim Rash’s (The Descendants) comedy starring Steve Carell and Sam Rockwell for a summer 2013 release. Read Matt’s review here.
- Kill Your Darlings – Director John Krokidas’ debut feature about the formative years of the Beat generation is one of my favorites from the festival so far, and Deadline reports that Sony Pictures Classics is closing a deal. The film features brilliant performances from Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan. Read Matt’s review here.
- Toy’s House – CBS Films has acquired domestic rights to this offbeat coming-of-age comedy from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, starring Nick Robinson, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, and Megan Mullally. It’s a decidedly unique film, but definitely worth checking out.
- Concussion – Radius-TWC has acquired domestic rights to this decidedly sexual drama from writer/director Stacie Passon. The film stars Robin Weigert.
