Maya Entertainment has acquired the foreign rights to the drama “The Last Rites of Joe May,” written and directed by Joe Maggio and starring Dennis Farina.

“Joe May” also stars Jamie Anne Allman, Ian Barford, Meredith Droeger, Chelcie Ross and Gary Cole. The film centers on a hustler, played by Farina, and his road to redemption.

“Joe May” world preemed at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. Foreign rights, handled by Elias Axume, president of international distribution for Maya, will be available starting at the Toronto Film Festival.

The film was produced by Stephanie Striegel and Bill Straus in association with the film arm of Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater. The deal was negotiated by Striegel and Straus on behalf of the picture and Tonantzin Esparza on behalf of Maya.
