NonStop picks up ‘Cosmopolis’

Spree includes 'The We and the I,' 'Broken,' 'Fan's Hope'

David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis” has been picked up by NonStop Ent. ahead of its Cannes competish slot Friday, which features among a slew of deals announced by the Scandinavian and Baltic distributor Thursday.

NonStop’s Croisette shopping spree also includes Michel Gondry’s “The We and the I,” Rufus Norris’ Critics’ Week opener “Broken,” Morgan Spurlock’s “Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope,” the Taviani brothers’ Berlin winner “Caesar Must Die.” and Italian box office success “A.C.A.B. All Cops Are Bastards.”

With the exception of “Cosmopolis,” for which NonStop did not pick up Baltic rights, and “Caesar Must Die” (Sweden, Finland and Iceland only), deals are for Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and the Baltic states.

NonStop previously acquired “Moonrise Kingdom” and “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” both of which play in Cannes’ official selection, in competition and Un Certain Regard respectively.

Meanwhile, Danish sales company TrustNordisk has announced major interest in upcoming project “Bekas.”

The debut by Sweden’s Karzan Kader, which gets its local release in November, is the story of two homeless Kurdish boys who dream of escaping Saddam Hussein’s Iraq in the early ’90s after seeing “Superman.”

Arrow Films (U.K.), Rialto Distribution (Australia, New Zealand), Cineart (Benelux), Israel (Lev Films), Sonamu Pictures (South Korea), Serenity Entertainment Intl. (Taiwan) and Falcon Films (Middle East) have picked up the film for all rights.
