A flurry of movies sales are being reported from this year’s Sundance Film Festival as the event winds down to its last days.
"A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, dubbed "cinema’s first Iranian vampire western," was acquired by Kinology and Cinetic Media for international and domestic distribution, respectively.
The movie, which debuted in the festival’s Next program, involves a vampire that stalks residents of an Iranian town.
IFC Films announced it has purchased the North American rights to Jim Mickle’s "Cold in July," which is competing in the U.S. Dramatic competition. Starring Michael C. Hall ("Dexter"), it tells the story of a man who kills a burglar and then fears for his and his family’s lives when the burglar’s father comes for revenge.
"Dinosaur 13," the documentary about competing paleontologists over the discovery of a full Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton in South Dakota, was bought by Lionsgate and CNN for distribution in North America.
Finally, RADiUS-TWC, a subsidiary of the Weinstein Company, bought worldwide rights to the comedy, "The One I Love," starring Mark Duplass and Elizabeth Moss ("Mad Men"). The movie involves a troubled married couple who go on a weekend getaway to try and repair their relationship.
