SPC crazy for ‘Wild Grass’

Alain Resnais's Cannes drama gets distribution

Sony Pictures Classics has picked up the U.S. theatrical on Alain Resnais’ romantic drama “Wild Grass.”

The specialty arm will unspool the pic, which bowed to critical raves at the Cannes Film Fest, in the U.S., Australia and New Zealand. The 87-year-old helmer also received a lifetime achievement nod in Cannes.

No release date has yet been set.

Pic is based on the French novel “L’incident,” about how a lost wallet opens the door to romantic adventure for characters played by Andre Dussollier and Sabine Azema.

Pic was produced by Jean-Louis Livi. Sony Pictures Classics acquired the rights from Alain Vannier and Orly Films.

“With ‘Wild Grass,’ (Resnais) has not only made one of his best films but also something new and fresh and very accessible to the American audience,” Sony Pictures Classics said in a statement.

Resnais’ most recent pics include “Private Fears in Public Places,” “Not on the Lips” and “Same Old Song.”
