Berlin 2012: Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Connelly Starrer 'Writers' Flying Off The Shelves As EFM Weekend Closes Out
Newcomer Joshua Boone’s bittersweet comedy script Writers, starring Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Connelly, has found itself caught in a flurry of deal memos as overseas buyers ink deals.
The script is billed as a funny tale of a fractured family trying to rediscover one another over the course of a year.
Sales guru Lisa Wilson, who founded start-up global sales label The Solution, has inked deals on the title with The Becker Film Group for Australia, eOne for Canada, Wild Bunch for Germany and German-speaking Switzerland, DeaPlaneta for Spain, Eagle Films for the Middle East, Village Roadshow in Greece, Pinema for Turkey, California Filmes for Latin America, SPI for Eastern Europe, Shaw in Singapore, PVR for India and Cinesky for international airlines.
LA-based Wilson, attending the EFM, said she was "overwhelmed by the response to the material." She added: "The story really resonates with the buyers and they recognize the great potential of the film."
The film is produced by Judy Cairo of Informant Media (Crazy Heart).
Executive producers are Informant’s Michael A. Simpson and Eric Brenner, as well as Myles Nestel and Wilson.
The film is produced in association with MICA Entertainment and is scheduled to begin shooting in Wilmington, NC in March.
