IFC nabs ‘It All,’ sets First Take bow

Von Trier's 'Boss' joins ranks

NEW YORK — IFC continues its acquisitions tear, buying U.S. rights to Lars von Trier’s “The Boss of It All.”

Distrib will put the Danish-language pic on its First Take label, which releases about 24 movies per year day-and-date. A spring bow is planned.

Movie is an office satire of sorts about a tech entrepreneur who hires an actor to pose as the fake prexy of his company and then has to face the consequences. Helmer also penned the script.

Vibeke Windelov, Meta Foldager and von Trier’s Zentropa Entertainments produced.

Von Trier helped create the Dogma 95 movement, which aims to find more naturalism in films, with B.O. successes like “Breaking the Waves,” though perfs of more recent films have been less solid.

IFC has recently bought a number of pics, including Asian-American-themed “Americanese,” mob comedy “You Kill Me” and, together with the Weinstein Co., Christina Ricci starrer “Penelope.”
