Sweden's NonStop in EFM buying spree


BERLIN -- Sweden's NonStop Entertainment pulled out its checkbook at this year's European Film Market, snatching rights to Scandinavia, Iceland and the Baltics to Berlin competition film "Jew Suss – Rise and Fall," Forum entry "Winter's Bone;" horror/thriller "Exam" from Brit director Stuart Hazeldine; Nick Love's coming-of-age tale "The Firm" and fashion-themed drama "Valentino: The Last Emperor" from director Matt Tyrnauer.

NonStop also pre-bought "2 Days in New York," taking Scandinavian and Icelandic rights to Julie Delpy's planned sequel to her 2007 sleeper "2 Days in Paris."

Three more titles heading north from Berlin with NonStop include Paul Schrader's Holocaust-themed drama "Adam Resurrected"; Marcio Bellocchio's historical drama "Vincere" and sports drama "Big Fan," directed by "The Wrestler" screenwriter Robert D. Siegel. NonStop took Scandinavian rights on all three films.
