Katapult makes deals for Japan, Middle East
Madonna’s S&M film “Filth & Wisdom” has been a spanking good seller for L.A. foreign sales outfit Katapult Films.
Pic, which is the Material Girl’s directorial debut, was sold to Hexagon Pictures in Japan, to Surreal Films in the CIS territories and United Arab Emirates-based Front Row Filmed Entertainment for the Middle East.
French rights were sold to La Fabrique de Films in a deal separately negotiated by CAA and lawyers Grubman Indursky & Shire.
Pic is set for a North American release through IFC in the fall.
