BUSY DAY AT TIFF WITH “SUPER” & “DIRTY GIRL” LANDING DEALS
The first weekend of the Toronto International Film Festival comes to a close with two films finding distribution deals.
Earlier today IFC landed the first major deal of the fest with a seven-figure deal for the James Gunn-directed wannabe superhero dark comedy Super, starring Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Kevin Bacon and Liv Tyler.
And just announced moments ago, The Weinstein Company inked a U.S. deal (and some foreign territories) north of $3 million for Dirty Girl. Starring Juno Temple, Dwight Yoakam, Milla Jovovich and Willam H. Macy, the film, directed by Abe Sylvia, follows a young girl through her journey of self discovery set in an 80s high school.
