Samuel Goldwyn has picked up U.S. rights to Sundance competition entry “Cold Souls.”
Writer-helmer Sophie Barthes’ pic garnered favorable response at the fest. Evoking a Charlie Kaufman concept, it stars Paul Giamatti as an actor who gets mixed up in black-market trading of souls.
The cast also includes David Strathairn, Dina Korzun, Katheryn Winnick, Lauren Ambrose and Emily Watson.
Goldwyn plans a late summer release.
