Horizon nabs ‘Chuck’ rights

'Star Maps' helmer Arteta directed pic

U.K.-based Distant Horizon has acquired South African distribution rights for the feature “Chuck and Buck” at Sundance. Helmed by Miguel Arteta (“Star Maps”), the pic explores the evolving relationship between the title characters from childhood to adulthood.

“We have been tracking ‘Chuck and Buck’ for some time now as we were impressed with Miguel Arteta’s direction in ‘Star Maps,’ his debut film at Sundance,” Distant Horizon CEO Anant Singh said. ” ‘Chuck and Buck,’ like ‘Blair Witch,’ is an almost new genre of film and we consider it to be the hottest picture at Sundance.”

One of Distant Horizon’s most recent acquisitions, Woody Allen’s “Sweet and Lowdown,” will be released in South Africa in March.
