Content takes on Judge’s ‘Extract’

Company also handling sales on 'Last Ride'

LONDON — Content Film Intl. has picked up international sales rights on Mike Judge’s forthcoming laffer “Extract,” starring Jason Bateman, Ben Affleck and Mila Kunis.

Clifton Collins Jr. (“Star Trek”), T.J. Miller (“Cloverfield”), Kristen Wiig (“Knocked Up”), Dustin Milligan (“90210”), J.K. Simmons (“Juno”) and Dave Koechner (“Anchorman”) also star.

Pic, which started lensing in L.A. Aug. 25, tells the story of a factory worker (Bateman) who finds his life turned upside down following an accident at work and an encounter with a young con artist and a dim-witted gigolo.

John Altschuler (“Blades of Glory”) and Michael Rotenberg (“Reign Over Me”) are producing with Tom Lassally (“Henry Poole Is Here”) and Dave Krinsky (“King of the Hill”) exec producing.

Content is also handling sales duties on Australian helmer Glendyn Ivin’s “Last Ride,” starring Hugo Weaving and Tom Russell, as well as helmer Robert Connolly’s East Timor-set “Balibo,” starring Anthony LaPaglia.

Both pix have just completed lensing.
