Footage to debut at European Film Market

Lightning Entertainment has acquired the international sales rights to Jada Pinkett Smith’s directorial debut, “The Human Contract.” The Santa Monica-based company will debut footage of the pic at Berlin’s European Film Market in February.

“Contract,” which stars Jason Clarke and Paz Vega, tells the story of a relationship between a repressed advertising exec and a reckless woman. Pinkett Smith and Ted Danson have supporting roles in the pic, which is now in post production.
