Toronto 2012: Canada's VVS Films Acquires 'Spring Breakers'
TORONTO - Canadian distributor VVS Films has acquired all Canadian rights to Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers, which stars James Franco, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens.
The Canadian distribution deal follows the risqué film about one-time Disney girls gone wild receiving a North American premiere last week in Toronto after a Venice bow.
The deal was negotiated by Harry Grivakis for VVS Films, and Ted Field and Mike Weber for Radar Pictures.
Annapurna Pictures earlier picked up the U.S rights to Spring Breakers, which is set for a 2013 release.
VVS Films also picked up the Canadian rights to Red Granite Pictures and Mandalay Pictures’ Horn, directed by Alexandre Aja, and David Grovic’s crime thriller Motel, which stars John Cusack and Robert DeNiro.
