Elle Driver nabs int’l rights to ‘Rock’

Pic is produced by Adele Romanski

Just days after Submarine Entertainment sold domestic rights to Katie Aselton’s “Black Rock” to Mickey Liddell’s LD Entertainment, the company has sold all foreign rights to Paris-based sales company Elle Driver.

Deal was negotiated by Submarine’s David Koh, Josh Braun and Dan Braun on behalf of the filmmakers and Adeline Fontan Tessaur of Elle Driver.

Adele Romanski produced the pic, which was exec produced by Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass, the latter of whom wrote the script

Described as a mix between “Deliverance” and “Thelma and Louise,” story follows three female friends who set aside their personal issues and organize a girls getaway weekend on a remote island on the coast of Maine. One wrong move turns into another as there is a deadly fight for survival.

“Now we have another kick-ass girl to add to the list of ‘Black Rock’s’ team … and this one speaks French! We couldn’t be more psyched to work with Adeline and the brilliant folks at Elle Driver,” said Aselton and Mark Duplass in a joint statement.

“We loved the classic revenge theme with the twist of girls kicking ass! Typical chick flick film mixing emotions, suspense and fun, serious without taking itself too seriously and a perfect fit for the Elle Driver slate,” added Tessaur.

“Black Rock” will be released stateside later this year. Pic screens again for Sundance auds at the Egyptian Theater tonight at Midnight.

As Variety first reported, Elle Driver recently came on to handle foreign sales for Matt Ross’ “28 Hotel Rooms,” which stars Chris Messina and Marin Ireland.

Submarine has been busy at Sundance, brokering deals for “Queen of Versailles” (Magnolia Pictures), “Me at the Zoo” (HBO) and “Searching for Sugarman” (Sony Pictures Classics).
