U.K. Distributors Revolver, Picturehouse Team on U.K. Rights for Sundance Duo
Pair pick up Josh Radnor's "Liberal Arts" and Bart Layton’s feature documentary debut "The Imposter."
LONDON – U.K. distributor Revolver Entertainment and British distribution label Picturehouse Entertainment have teamed to acquire all U.K. rights for a brace of Sundance movies.
The two have joined forces to buy Josh Radnor's Liberal Arts, starring Elizabeth Olsen, Zac Efron, Richard Jenkins, Allison Janney, John Magaro and Elizabeth Reaser and Bart Layton’s feature documentary debut, The Imposter for the U.K.
Layton’s documentary is produced by Dimitri Doganis and is an A&E IndieFilms, Film4 and Channel 4 presentation of a RAW Production in association with Red Box Films and Passion Pictures.
Executive producers include John Battsek and Simon Chinn.
This deal marks the first time Picturehouse and Revolver have come together to work on acquiring rights.
Both companies will work closely together on each stage of Liberal Arts and The Imposters release in the U.K.
Revolver CEO Justin Marciano said he’s been looking to collaborate with Picturehouse for a long time.
Picturehouse Entertainment director Clare Binns, said the deal means that the pair can go after and acquire “these more ambitious titles, and use both teams’ talents to really give them the best possible launch in the U.K.”
The rights deal for Liberal Arts was struck between Dave Bishop, Revolver’s head of acquisitions, Binns and Ruzanna Kegeyan, president of Ashok Amritaj’s Hyde Park International, and Jennifer Dana and Jay Cohen of Gersh.
Rights for The Imposter were agreed between Bishop, Binns and sales banner Protagonist Pictures CEO Ben Roberts.
