Gotham-based banner Film Sales Co. has sealed a deal to rep rights on the in-production docu “Guest of Cindy Sherman,” which follows the enigmatic contempo shutterbug.
Pic is being helmed by Paul H-O and Tom Donahue.
Plot explores the complicated relationship that builds after H-O — a onetime host of the Art TV cable series “Gallery Beat” — interviews media-shy Sherman and is subsequently pulled into an undertow of art, love and fame.
“Sherman” includes rare access to the artist, as well as interviews with key art world figures and clips from H-O’s irreverent cult cable skein.
Donahue and partner Anura Idupuganti are producing the pic, with H-O exec producing.
Creative team is eyeing a fall completion date.
