Goldwyn, Image check in to 'Management'

Nearing deal for distribution rights to the comedy

Samuel Goldwyn Films and Image Entertainment are finalizing a domestic distribution deal for the Jennifer Aniston comedy "Management."

Steve Zahn and Woody Harrelson also star in the Sidney Kimmel Entertainment film, one of the top properties eyed by buyers at September's Toronto International Film Festival.

In writer-director Stephen Belber's film, Zahn plays Mike, an offbeat hotel manager who falls for his uptight guest Sue (Aniston). Harrelson plays her punk-rock ex-boyfriend.

Image, which picked up U.S. rights, will release the film on home video after its theatrical release. SGF is in final negotiations to distribute the film in theaters early next year.

CAA and ICM repped the domestic deal. SKE's international arm, Sidney Kimmel International, is handling sales in overseas territories.
