George Clooney’s ‘Suburbicon’ Sells Around the World

Alex Walton’s sales, production and financing outfit Bloom has sold George Clooney’s black comedy “Suburbicon,” which stars Matt Damon and Julianne Moore, around the world.

The movie, which was written by Joel and Ethan Coen, is produced by Joel Silver, Clooney, Grant Heslov and Teddy Schwarzman, and is expected to begin shooting this October in Los Angeles. Paramount Pictures acquired U.S. distribution rights two days ago.

The movie has now been sold to U.K (eOne); Germany (Tele Muenchen/Concorde); Spain (Tri-Pictures); Italy (Leone Films); Latin America (Sun Distribution); Canada (Elevation); Greece (Odeon); Hong Kong, (Bravos); Scandinavia (MisLabel); Romania (Odeon); Turkey (Bir); Korea (Woosung); Japan (Tohokushinka Film Corporation); India (PVR); Taiwan (Filmware); Czech Republic (AQS); Poland (Monolith); Australia (Roadshow); former Yugoslavia (Blitz); and Middle East (Salim Ramia).

Walton commented: “We’ve had an overwhelming response to ‘Suburbicon’ at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, drumming up worthy international attention thanks to its stellar cast and production team. We’ve worked relentlessly alongside George and the producers to meet with buyers at the market, triggering early responses to one of 2016’s most exciting titles.”

The film centers on the Lodge family, who live in a suburban community of smiling young families nestled in the heart of Middle America. Their lives are turned upside down when a home invasion gone wrong is responsible for the shocking death of little Nicky Lodge’s mother. An unlikely and highly suspicious series of events consumes the Lodge household as the family descends deeper into a web of betrayal, adultery and blackmail.

Clooney’s directing credits include “Monuments Men,” “Leatherheads,” “The Ides of March,” “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” and “Good Night and Good Luck.”
