Paladin nabs Tom Shadyac doc

'I Am' documents 'Ace Ventura' director's cycling accident

Paladin has picked up Tom Shadyac docu “I Am” for a February theatrical release, part of a screening sked that includes fests and college campuses around the country.

Movie from Shadyac — helmer of bigscreen comedies including “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” and “Bruce Almighty” — was prompted by a cycling accident that left the helmer incapacitated. After he recovered, his new perspective propelled him to make major changes in his life and to look for ways humanity can improve itself. Film includes interviews with Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn and Desmond Tutu.

Proceeds for “I Am” will go entirely to the Foundation for I Am, the nonprofit established by Shadyac to further work and education on the issues the movie raises.

“I Am” joins a Paladin slate that also includes Sundance alum “Douchebag,” rolling out this month.
