Wild Bunch sells Spurlock's Bin Laden film

In another high-profile acquisition for StudioCanal’s aggressive British distribution outfit, Optimum Releasing has picked up all U.K. rights to Morgan Spurlock’s Osama Bin Laden documentary.

Sales agent Wild Bunch was asking a rich $850,000 for the U.K. deal, but it’s not known how close Optimum came to that figure.

Spurlock’s “Super Size Me” grossed a healthy $2.2 million in Blighty via Tartan.
