Complete Berlinale coverage

BERLIN -- First Look Studios has landed the first U.S. acquisition of Berlin's European Film Market, picking up the Heather Graham starrer "Buy Borrow Steal" from Germany's Atrix Films.

The romantic comedy, directed by Eric Styles, has Graham as a young single who finds out she has only four days to get pregnant before her biological clock runs out.

Produced by Doris Kirch through her Berlin-based Blue Angel Films in co-production with Michel Morales of Miromar Entertainment, "Buy Borrow Steal" also features Mia Kirshner of "The L Word."

The deal was negotiated by First Look executive vp Gary Hirsch and Oliver Mahrdt of Hanns Wolters International on behalf of Kirch and Morales.

"Buy" will have its world premiere at the Miami International Film Festival, and First Look will release the film in the U.S. in the spring.
