Universal International nabs ‘I Am’ rights

Tom Shadyac doc follow's director's 2007 biking accident

Universal Pictures International Entertainment has acquired worldwide distribution rights (excluding the U.S, and Canada) for Tom Shadyac’s documentary feature “I Am.”

Deal was annouced by Mimi Steinbauer, president and CEO of Radiant Films International.

“I Am” is the result of a life-changing biking accident in 2007 suffered by director Shadyac which compelled him to re-evaluate his Hollywood lifestyle and seek the answers to the questions: what’s wrong with our world and what can we do to make it better? Shadyac interviewed David Suzuki, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Paladin handled the U.S. release.

Radiant launched earlier this year as an international sales company funded through private equity sources which plans to acquire and distribute between six to eight theatrical titles per year. Slate includes Andrew Levitas’ drama “Lullaby.”
