Cannes 2012: NonStop Takes 'Cosmopolis,' 'The We And The I' for Scandinavia
COLOGNE, Germany – Swedish indie distributor NonStop Entertainment stocked up on titles at Cannes’ Marche du Film this year, taking Scandinavian rights to David Cronenberg’s Cannes Competition title Cosmopolis starring Robert Pattinson and Michel Gondry’s Director’s Fortnight opener The We & The I from sales agent Kinology. NonStop had previously acquired Wes Anderson’s Cannes Competition opener Moonrise Kingdom as well as Beasts of the Southern Wild, from Benh Zeitlin, which screened in the Un Certain Regard sidebar.
NonStop’s other Cannes acquisitions included Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope, Morgan Spurlock’s documentary about San Diego’s famed comic book convention from sales group Autlook; Paolo and Vittorio Taviani’s Berlin Film Festival winner Caesar Must Die; Rufus Norris’ directorial debut Broken, which stars Tim Roth and Cillian Murphy, from Wild Bunch; and the Italian box office hit A.C.A.B: All Cops Are Bastards from Elle Driver.
NonStop picked up rights for the entire Nordic and Baltic region for all titles, except for Cosmopolis, which NonStop only has for Scandinavia, and Caesar Must Die, which the company will release just in Sweden, Finland and Iceland.
