Anne Hathaway-Starrer ‘Colossal’ Ignites Voltage, Brightlight Sales Deal

Anne Hathaway-starring thriller “Collosal” — set to start lensing Oct. 19 in Vancouver, according to a source close to the production — is the first title Nicolas Chartier’s Voltage Pictures is selling as part of a new five-film sales deal with Canada’s Brightlight Pictures.

Brightlight’s Shawn Williamson and Chartier recently inked a three-year, non-exclusive sales agency deal, following their collaboration on the 2012 Robert Redford film “The Company You Keep.”

“As we increase our international sales, we look forward to more movies from Shawn and Brightlight,” said Chartier.

Founded by Williamson in 2001, Brightlight is the Vancouver-headquartered film and TV production company  and packager of over 35 titles. Williamson recently exec produced “The Interview” (Columbia), and produced Alexandre Aja’s “The 9th Life of Louis Drax” (Miramax).

Jason Sudeikis also stars in “Collosal,” which is written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo (“Timecrimes”), and produced by Vigalondo’s longtime producing partner Nahikari Ipina of Sayaka Producciones and, now, Williamson.

CAA is representing U.S. rights for “Colossal.”
