Elle Driver reserves ’28 Hotel Rooms’

Paris-based company to rep pic's worldwide sales

Elle Driver, the Paris-based sales and acquisitions company brokering international rights for Sundance titles ”Bachelorette” and ”Young and Wild,” has closed a deal to rep worldwide sales for ”28 Hotel Rooms.”

North American rights will continue to be handled by Preferred Content.

Pic premieres this afternoon in Sundance’s NEXT section. Chris Messina and Marin Ireland star in the intimate infidelity drama that marks Ross’ debut feature.

”We were immediately drawn to the originality of the story and Matt Ross’s vision of a very unique relationship,” said Elle Driver managing director Adeline Fontan Tessaur. ”This intimate close-up captures two people in their most authentic, private moments — it creates an immediate identification with and tenderness for the characters.”

The four-year-old Elle Driver is representing international sales on two other Sundance films, the premiering ”Bachelorette,” Leslye Headland’s wedding comedy starring Kirsten Dunst; and Marialy Rivas’s ”Young and Wild” in the world cinema dramatic competition.

”Hotel Rooms” producer Lynette Howell (”Half Nelson,” ”Blue Valentine”) said Elle Driver ”has an outstanding reputation for bringing arthouse fare to an international audience, and as evidenced in the past few years, the NEXT section has become a place to discover unique voices that translate both in the US marketplace and abroad.”

Howell and Elle Driver were paired last year at Sundance on the Elizabeth Olsen-starrer ”Silent House.”

”Hotel Rooms” is a Silverwood Films presentation of a ONEZERO Films production in association with Sundial Pictures and Mott Street Pictures.
