'The Greatest' picked up by Senator

Susan Sarandon, Pierce Brosnan star in family drama

NEW YORK -- Senator Entertainment has made its second pickup of a movie that played this year's Sundance Film Festival, buying North American rights to the family drama "The Greatest."

Pierce Brosnan and Susan Sanradon star in the pic, which centers on a couple that loses their son in a car accident and then learns that the girlfriend he has left behind is pregnant with his child. Shana Feste wrote and directed the drama, which also features rising star Carey Mulligan.

The retooled Senator had previously made a splash when it bought opening-night film "Brooklyn's Finest," Antoine Fuqua's gritty cop drama, which it plans to release this year.

The filmmakers were repped by CAA and Endeavor.
