Sundance: Which studios are making major acquisitions?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: From a sales perspective, Sundance has been remarkably busy as of late … which is excellent news for those of you who were not able to make it to Park City this year. It means some (hopefully) entertaining films will make their way to your market – sooner rather than later, if you’re lucky.

Let’s run through the top acquisitions from the Sundance Film Festival in the past 48 hours:

– Rashida Jones’s “Celeste and Jesse Forever,” which also stars “SNL” standout Andy Samberg, was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics after a sold-out premiere at the Eccles.

– Millennium Entertainment picked up the rights to Rodrigo Cortes’s “Red Lights,” a supernatural thriller starring Robert De Niro, Sigourney Weaver, Cillian Murphy and “Martha Marcy May Marlene” star Elizabeth Olsen.

– Focus Features picked up the tab for the raunchy phone-sex comedy, “For a Good Time Call …”

– The dreamy “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” one of the fest’s most buzzed about titles, went to Fox Searchlight.

– And finally, Searchlight also picked up the tearful “The Surrogate,” which some are predicting will be an awards player for Helen Hunt and John Hawkes next Oscar season.
