Sundance: “Son of No One,” with Channing Tatum and Al Pacino, sold


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: By all accounts, this year’s Sundance Film Festival was active for filmmakers and distributors looking to strike deals. Fox Searchlight snatched up “Homework” and the drama “Martha Macy May Marlene.” IFC grabbed “The Ledge” with Liv Tyler, while “My Idiot Brother” went to The Weinstein Company.

Even films that received a lukewarm reception, such as the cop drama “Son Of No One” with Al Pacino and Channing Tatum, found a home. The L.A. Times notes that the film “played to a warm reception to a full house of approximately 1,200 film-goers at the Eccles Theatre,” even though at an earlier press and industry screening, a “number of people had left … early.”

Now you’ll get to judge for yourself. “Son” was purchased by Anchor Bay for approximately $2 million for the rights to distribute Dito Montiel’s film, which stars Tatum as a young New York cop who must face down dark secrets from his past. Katie Holmes, Ray Liotta and Tracy Morgan also star.

The Hollywood Reporter quotes several sources who say Montiel “may recut portions of the film’s third act, which involves a violent rooftop standoff and an inserted title card that have befuddled critics.” So the version some saw at Sundance could be different than the one that eventually reaches theaters later this year.
