Weinstein Co. Picks Up John Curran's

The Weinstein Co. has acquired John Curran’s Aussie drama “Tracks” for the U.S. in one of the first big festival deals of the busy fall season.

HanWay Films produced the pic, which stars Mia Wasikowska and Adam Driver. It’s having its North American preem at Telluride before heading to Toronto.

Film is based on a memoir by Robyn Davidson from a script by Marion Nelson. Story centers on how Davidson repaired her life after the collapse of her marriage by trekking through the Australian desert.

The news was first reported on Deadline.

CAA, Thorsten Schumacher, managing director of HanWay Films, and Craig Emanuel of Loeb & Loeb brokered the deal on behalf of the filmmakers with TWC’s COO David Glasser and president/managing director of European acquisitions Robert Walak.
