‘Hello’ going out on global deals

6 Sales closes slew of territories for Sundance opener

Proving there is an upbeat sales life beyond the U.S. for select Sundance titles, “Hello I Must Be Going” has begun to roll out licensing deals outside the U.S.

Sold by Spain’s 6 Sales, the opening night film of the 2012 Sundance festival has closed Italy with Notorious, Australia and New Zealand (Accent), Benelux (Wild Bunch) and Portugal (Lusomundo).

The U.K., Scandinavia and Japan are also under negotiation, said 6 Sales founder Marina Fuentes.

The new distribution company set up by Giuglielmo Marchetti and Roberto Proia who ankled this April as CEO and marketing manager respectively at Italo indie distrib Moviemax Media Group, Notorious plans a wide theatrical release for “Hello,” said 6 Sales partner Marina Fuentes.

Dominated by Melanie Lynskey’s lead perf, “Hello” turns on a down-in-the-dumps divorcee who moves back in with her parents at the age of 35, but then begins to attract the surprise attentions of a 19-year-old boy.

“‘Hello’ is a broad comedy with great appeal to women from 20 to 45 years old,” Fuentes said.

Oscilloscope opened “Hello” Sept. 7, garnering mostly thumbs-up reviews and a first weekend $23,904 from two theaters. On limited release, it has grossed $96,118 in the U.S.
