Worldview Takes U.S. on Benicio Del Toro’s ‘Jimmy P.’

Drama to premiere in competition at Cannes

Worldview Entertainment has acquired the U.S. rights to Arnaud Desplechin’s drama “Jimmy P.,” starring  Benicio Del Toro, from Wild Bunch.

Desplechin adapted the screenplay based on Georges Devereux’s book “Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian” about Jimmy Picard, a Blackfoot Indian who suffered from psychological distress after fighting in WWII.

The film will make its world premiere in competition at Cannes Film Festival. CAA negotiated the deal on behalf of Worldview.

“Jimmy P.” joins James Gray’s period drama “The Immigrant,” and Guillaume Canet’s crime thriller “Blood Ties” as Worldview titles screening at Cannes.

Worldview also announced this week that it is producing and financing “Manglehorn,” from writer-director David Gordon Green. It’s the second collaboration with the filmmaker following family drama “Joe.”

Worldview’s current slate includes Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s comedy, “Birdman,” with Fox Searchlight and New Regency; and  Daniel Espinosa’s crime thriller, “Child 44,” with Summit/Lionsgate, set to begin filming this June in Prague. The company also financed and produced Atom Egoyan’s crime thriller, “Devil’s Knot,” Eli Roth’s horror thriller, “The Green Inferno” and Ti West’s horror thriller, “The Sacrament.”
