Coach 14 takes ‘Terri’

Company nabs worldwide rights, outside U.S., to Sundance pic

In an on-site Sundance deal, Paris-based sales company Coach 14 has tied down worldwide rights outside North America to Sundance Dramatic Competition competitor “Terri,” starring John C. Reilly.

Directed by Azazel Jacobs (“Momma’s Man,” “The Good Times Kid”), “Terri” world preemed to upbeat reactions at Sundance.

Dave Matthews’ ATO Pictures pre-bought U.S. distribution rights to “Terri” last September.

An early deal this year by a European company on a Dramatic Competition player, the international sales pact was inked at Sundance by Coach 14’s Jaume Domenech and pic’s producers Alexander Orlovsky and Hunter Gray.

Turning around the growing friendship between a 15-year-old oversized loner (Jacob Wysocki) and his stern high-school vice principal (Reilly), “Terri” will be introduced by Coach 14 to international distributors at private screenings during Berlin’s European Film market next month.

Underscoring French companies’ interest in U.S. fare, and ability to compete for international rights with American companies, Coach 14 will also rep “A Little Closer,” a portrait of Virginia small-town woes and sexual suffering from American Matthew Petock. His feature debut, “Closer” world preems this week at the Rotterdam Festival.

Coach 14 will also hold buyers’ only private screenings for Jean-Baptiste Leonetti’s long-in-the-works “Carre Blanc,” a futuristic film noir toplining France’s Sami Bouajila and Julie Gayet.
