My coverage of the 2007 Sundance Film Festival is almost over, as the event comes to a close in Park City, Utah. I've brought you previews of some of the promising comedies, dramas, dramedies and documentaries, so I figured I'd also mention some of the films that, thanks to big studios offering lots of money, will probably be coming to a theater near you (or Netflix) relatively soon. Check out which movies attracted the big money - and how much.
- The dramedy starring John Cusack, Grace Is Gone, was bought by The Weinstein Company for $4 million.
- The documentary questioning child genius, My Kid Could Paint That, handed over rights to Sony Pictures Classics for a cool $1 million.
- The Southern small-town comedy starring Keri Russell, Waitress, was bought by Fox Searchlight for $4 million.
- Paramount Vintage paid an impressive $7 million for the rights to a British coming-of-age film called Son of Rambow.
To see the rest
- I don't know how I missed this one, but I can't wait to see it: romantic drama Dedication, starring Billy Crudup and Mandy Moore drew $4 million from the Weinstein Company and First Look.
- Not another dance competition movie! Yes, a drama called How She Move and was bought by MTV Films and Paramount Vantage for $3 million.
- Psychological thriller Joshua drew in $4 million by Fox Searchlight, while horror flick The Signal was bought by Magnolia Films for $2 million.
- Black Snake Moan already has Paramount Classics behind it and will be in theaters on February 23rd.
