'Polanski' in at Weinstein Co.
PARK CITY -- The Weinstein Co. is the first major American distributor to make a move at Sundance, picking up international rights to "Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired."
Marina Zenovich's docu tracks the iconic director's statutory rape trial and urges a second look at the particulars of the case. TWC bought all rights excluding North America and U.K. TV.
Domestic rights are still said to be in play, with more screenings scheduled for Saturday. The movie screened Friday evening at a small screening at Holiday Village, meeting with widespread acclaim.
Harvey Weinstein also was spotted late Friday evening at both afterparties for Jonathan Levine's coming-of-age dramedy "The Wackness" and the Big Beach female-bonding drama "Sunshine Cleaning." Those movies played to packed, distributor-heavy screenings at the Racquet Club, but neither movie was said to be close to a deal by Saturday morning.
