Venice: Bureau Sales to Rep ‘The Goob’ International Sales Rights (EXCLUSIVE)

Moving into the international distribution of firstrun films, the Bureau Sales, the overseas licensing arm of London- and Paris-based production houses the Bureau/Le Bureau, is repping international sales rights to “The Goob,” scribe-helmer Guy Myhill’s debut feature.

World premiering today in Venice Days, “The Goob” is the first film to go into production from more than 350 applications under iFeatures, Creative England’s low-budget filmmaking plan backed by BFI Film Fund, BBC Films and Creative Skillset Film Skills Fund.

Set in Norfolk during a sweltering summer, “Goob” turns on Goob Taylor, a 16-year-old who helps out at his mum’s cafe and harvests surrounding pumpkin fields. When his mother shacks up with a stock-car racing ace and ladies man Gene, Goob is left alone, taking a shine to an exotic pumpkin picker, Eva. Fueled by her flirting, he dreams of better things.

“The Goob” marks Emu Films’ second feature after Daniel and Matthew Wolfe’s “Catch Me Daddy,” a Cannes’ 2013 Directors’ Fortnight screener.

The Bureau Sales broadened its library film sales activity to the international market in 2009. TBS reps 500 titles now.

Benefiting from its expertise, positioning and presence at international film markets, TBS recently moved into selling new films that the producers from the Bureau and Le Bureau produce, co-produce or exec produce, said TBS’ Rym Hachimi.

Other new titles include “Lady Grey” from Alain Choquart, with Peter Sarsgaard, Emily Mortimer and Jeremie Renier, now in post; “Sky,” by Fabienne Berthaud, starring Diane Kruger; and Tessa Morgan’s docu “The Pioneers,” about the birth of street dancing in New York.
