Tuesday morning marked a break in the purchasing logjam with two significant feature buys.

Fox Searchlight has acquired world rights, less several international territories, to “Choke,” adapted from the novel by Chuck Palahniuk (“Fight Club”). Deal is valued at $5 million. Sam Rockwell and Anjelica Huston star in the pic, which was directed by Clark Gregg.

Overture Films has also purchased U.S. rights for about $3.5 million on “Henry Poole is Here,” a drama directed by Mark Pellington and starring Luke Wilson and Radha Mitchell.

Also expected to sell today is “Hamlet 2,” after an all-night bidding war at the CAA condo.
