Delpy starrer sold to over 40 territories
Buyers from the world over — including the U.S.’s Samuel Goldwyn Films and Netflix — have fallen for “2 Days in Paris.”Gallic indie Rezo has sold Julie Delpy’s Panorama title to more than 40 territories, racking up in the region of e1.5 million — about the same amount the pic cost to make. Woody Allen-esque comedy starring Delpy and Adam Goldberg as a Franco-American couple on a sejour in Paris prompted bidding wars in most territories, Rezo’s sales topper Sebastien Chesneau said. On Tuesday, four British distribbers were fighting it out for the pic as the last remaining territories were getting snapped up. “There has been huge enthusiasm for the film,” Chesneau said. “Distributors have been coming to us full of ideas about how they plan to release the film.” Pic’s laugh-out-loud culture clash gags also went down well with crix. Among deals announced Tuesday were Non Stop Entertainment for Scandinavia, Imagine for Benelux, Golem for Spain, DNC for Italy and EEAP for Eastern Europe and Russia. Asian deals include Korea’s Cinema Valley, Taiwan’s Swallow Wing, Hong Kong’s Edko. Japan’s New Select pre-bought the pic. Meanwhile, another Rezo best-seller, Jean-Claude Brisseau’s explicit “Exterminating Angels,” made some sales, including to the Baltic states Acme Lab.
