Sundance: Company gets N. American rights to Russo-Young pic

Magnolia Pictures has acquired North American rights to Ry Russo-Young’s “Nobody Walks” for high-six figures, with a significant theatrical commitment as part of the deal.

Pic, which Russo-Young co-wrote with Lena Dunham (“Tiny Furniture”), stars John Krasinski, Olivia Thirlby and Rosemarie DeWitt.

Super Crispy Entertainment’s Jonathan Schwartz and Andrea Sperling produced with Alicia Van Couvering.

Nobody Walks” already has several foreign deals in place that push its combined haul into the solid seven-figure range, and there are numerous bidders for other foreign territories, which will be announced shortly.

Krasinski and DeWitt play a Silver Lake couple whose lives are disrupted by the arrival of young New York artist, played by Thirlby.

Super Crispy is also behind James Ponsoldt’s alcoholism drama “Smashed,” which stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aaron Paul, Octavia Spencer, Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally. UTA is handling that sale, and several buyers are circling the Sundance film, which garnered strong reviews, many of which singled out Winstead for her perf.

Earlier in the week, Magnolia’s genre label Magnet Releasing made a low-seven figure deal for North American rights to the horror anthology “V/H/S.”
