‘Day’ rights to Trimark for low seven figures

Woods, Griffith star in Clark feature

Trimark Pictures has acquired North American rights to photographer-turned-filmmaker Larry Clark’s second feature, “Another Day in Paradise,” for a low seven figures.

The company will release the picture theatrically sometime next year.

“Paradise,” which was well-received in its world preem at the Venice Film Fest, makes its North American debut at Toronto on Tuesday.

The pic stars James Woods and Melanie Griffith as a couple who try to create a family with two street waifs (played by Natasha Gregson Wagner and Vincent Kartheiser) — with tragic results.

Woods, Clark and Stephen Chin produced the film, which is based on a prison novel of the same name by Eddie Little. Trimark senior VP Ray Price describes the film as a “criminal verite about family.”

“In it, Larry Clark parallels, in a narrative sense, what he did in his famous photographic collection, ‘Tulsa,’ ” he said.

Trimark distributed Clark’s first feature, “Kids,” on homevideo.

Chin, attorney Andrew Hurwitz and ICM’s Ken Kamins negotiated on behalf of the filmmakers.

Trimark acquisition execs Peter Block, Bobby Rock and Guy Stodel made the buy for Trimark.
