Goldwyn embraces ‘Virgin Suicides’

Pic is Sofia Coppola's helming bow

LONDON — Goldwyn Films has added Sofia Coppola’s directorial debut, “The Virgin Suicides,” to its slate for sale outside North America and continental Europe.

The American Zoetrope pic, which is in post-production, stars Kathleen Turner, James Woods and Kirsten Dunst, with Danny DeVito in a cameo role.

Based on the cult novel of the same name, “The Virgin Suicides” is a darkly humorous tale of five boys discovering their sexuality in the 1970s. It’s produced by Julie Costanzo of American Zoetrope and Chris Hanley and Dan Halsted for Muse Prods., with Francis Ford Coppola and Fred Fuchs as exec producers.

Canal Plus has tied up rights in continental Europe, while North America is still available.

Wendy Palmer, chief exec of Goldwyn, said, “We are delighted to be involved in Sofia’s first feature, and have great confidence in her ability as a director.”

Ray Price of American Zoetrope added, “We are particularly excited because this film and Goldwyn epitomize the kind of artistic excellence which Zoetrope seeks to address with all its future projects.”
