Image buys Mickey Rourke-Megan Fox film
Deal for 'Passion Play' valued at more than seven figuresMore Toronto coverage
Squeezing in under the wire as the curtain was falling Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival, "Passion Play," starring Mickey Rourke, sold to Image Entertainment.
Written and directed by Mitch Glazer, the film stars Rourke as a jazz trumpeter who falls in love with a woman (Megan Fox) who sprouts wings. Bill Murray co-stars.
Image took U.S. rights in a deal, which closed Sunday and is valued at more than seven figures. Entertainment One will distribute in Canada.
Daniel Dubiecki and Megan Ellison produced the film, with Rebecca Wang as exec producer. ICM, which reps Glazer, Rourke and Fox, handled the sale.
Image will release "Passion" theatrically, although release dates haven't yet been determined.
