A Quick and Dirty Look at the Sundance Sales So Far

Instead of getting all wordy on you (considering the massive hangover I got from playing 13 chess games, 4 games of scrabble, 2 Risk rounds, and one epic match of Calvin Ball simultaneously last night), I figure you’d rather just get a snapshot of who bought what and for what amount and who slept with who to make it happen.

Here you go:

  • Focus Features bought The Kids Are All Right (the Julianne Moore/Mark Ruffalo flick about a sperm donor to a lesbian couple becoming a member of the family) for $4.8 million.
  • Hannover House bought Twelve (the drug/murder drama version of “Gossip Girl” featuring a cast member from “Gossip Girl”) for $2 million.
  • Newmarket bought Hesher (the much-lauded Joseph Gordon-Levitt anarchist/home-made tattoos movie) for $1 million.
  • Lionsgate bought Buried (that movie where Ryan Reynolds is in a box the whole time and I owe Neil ten bucks because I didn’t think it would get distribution) for $3.2 million.

I’ll add more to the list as they come in.

Now, I leave it to you simply to argue over whether you want to see those films.

What do you think?
