GreeneStreet Int'l nabs 'Expired' rights


NEW YORK -- GreeneStreet Films International has acquired worldwide sales rights to Cecilia Miniucchi's dark romantic comedy "Expired" starring Samantha Morton, Jason Patric, Teri Garr and Illeana Douglas.

"Expired" will close the 46th Festival de Cannes Critics Week sidebar, and is the only U.S.-made film selected for the program.

The feature, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival, explores the dysfunctional relationship between a meter maid (Morton) and traffic cop (Patric).

"Expired" is produced by Jeffrey Coulter and Fred Roos. Antoni Stutz, Alexander Shing and Lawrence Wang served as the film's executive producers.

Upcoming GSFI features on the Cannes sales slate include another Sundance premiere, "The Nines" starring Ryan Reynolds and Hope Davis, and "Gary the Tennis Coach" with Seann William Scott.

GreeneStreet Films International President Ariel Veneziano negotiated the deal with Coulter and Roos.
