CANNES: Charlize Theron on ‘American Express’ as Megan Ellison Rebrands Foreign Sales

In a pre-Cannes move, Charlize Theron is in talks to star in independent movie “American Express,” to be directed by actor-stuntman-helmer Nash Edgerton.

Theron is producing with Annapurna Pictures through her Denver & Delilah company. The logline is under wraps.

Annapurna will be selling rights at the Cannes Film Festival, which will also see the rebranding of Panorama Media as Annapurna International. Annapurna founder and principal Megan Ellison made the announcement along with international sales chief Kim Fox.

Annapurna is also handling international rights at Cannes to John Krasinski’s “The Hollars,” which stars Krasinski, Anna Kendrick, Richard Jenkins and Margo Martindale.

“With Annapurna Pictures, Megan has built a brand that is recognized for its involvement with quality projects and filmmakers,” said Fox. “With the new title of Annapurna International, I am excited to expand that brand globally with our amazing team.”

The move comes four months after Marc Butan exited Panorama Media and joined Sierra/Affinity as its co-president with Marc Schaberg. At that point, Panorama announced it would reduce its involvement in financing and production while continuing as the international sales agent on select projects from Annapurna Pictures as well as select third-party titles.
