Summit pins ‘Wrestler’

Film unit to handle rights to Aronofsky drama

Summit Intl. will handle international rights to Darren Aronofsky’s indie drama “The Wrestler,” starring Nicolas Cage.

Story centers on a 1980s-era wrestling star, who scrapes by doing small-time matches in New Jersey’s backwaters.

Aronofsky’s directing and producing. Cage, Norm Golightly’s Saturn Films and Scott Franklin are also producing. Screenplay was written by Robert Siegel and is being financed by Winchester Capital Partners, the film finance company created by Jean-Luc De Fanti and Jeff Sagansky.

Summit will begin pre-sales at the upcoming American Film Market. The banner also handled Aronofsky’s “Pi” and “Requiem for a Dream.”

CAA, which reps Cage and Aronofsky, packaged the deal and is helping to sell the pic.
