LA MISMA LUNA
Park City, Jan. 23. Sundance continues to see hard cash exchanged for celluloid dreams. The Weinstein Company picked up two films with joint ventures to distribute with other companies. Patricia Riggen’s Mexican-American magical drama LA MISMA LUNA [festival.sundance.org] will be co-distributed by The Weinstein Company and Fox Searchlight. In another deal The Weinstein Company joined forces with First Look to distribute actor-turned-director Justin Theroux’s quirky romance DEDICATION [festival.sundance.org]. Magnolia picked up the David Bruckner, Jacob Gentry and Dan Bush’s media zombie midnight flick THE SIGNAL [festival.sundance.org] in a deal that was signed appropriately way after midnight. Paramount Vantage in heavy bidding may have spent upwards to $8-9 million for Garth Jennings’ zany 80s coming-of-age comedy SON OF RAMBOW [festival.sundance.org]. — Peter Bowen Senior Editor, FIlmmaker Magazine
