Sundance selects takes rights on ‘Blue Caprice’

Pic to open New Directors/New Films Festival

Sundance Selects has acquired North American and Latin American rights to Alexandre Moors’ debut feature “Blue Caprice,” two months after its world premiere at Sundance.

“Caprice” will open the Film Society of Lincoln Center and MOMA’s New Directors/New Films Festival.

The film was produced by Isen Robbins, Aimee Schoof, Ron Simons, Stephen Tedeschi, Brian O’Carroll, Kim Jackson and Will Rowbotham and stars Isaiah Washington, Tequan Richmond, Joey Lauren Adams, Tim Blake Nelson and Leo Fitzpatrick.

Penned by R.F.I Porto, “Blue Caprice” centers on an abandoned boy (portrayed by Richmond) lured to America into the shadows of a dangerous father figure, played by Washington, and investigates the notorious Beltway sniper attacks from the point of view of the two killers.

Variety said in its Sundance review that the pic was “chillingly authenthic.”

Deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco and Jeff Deutchman for Sundance Selects/IFC Films; and John Sloss and Dana O’Keefe at Cinetic on behalf of the filmmakers. Gray Krauss Stratford Des Rochers LLP provided additional legal counsel for the filmmakers.
