O’seas ‘Blessed’ with Sundance pic’s rights

Also gets domestic dibs for wine-country-monk tale

Overseas Filmgroup has acquired worldwide rights to Tim Disney’s “Blessed Art Thou,” an official competition selection of the 2000 Sundance Film Festival.

In addition to foreign sales, Overseas also will handle the film’s domestic release, but no date is set.

“Blessed” is the story of a monk in the California wine country who is affected by an immaculate conception that forces his brothers to grapple with the fundamental tensions between faith and reason.

“Despite an unusual premise, the film presents issues that we care about very deeply,” Disney said. “I am very grateful for Overseas’ belief in the film.”

Added Overseas co-CEO Robbie Little: “With ‘Blessed Art Thou,’ we felt this was a subject matter handled with humor and class.”

“Blessed” was produced by Bill Haney’s Uncommon Prods., with Edward Pressman serving as executive producer. Cassian Elwes and Rena Ronson at WMA Independents repped the film.
