NonStop picks up ‘Cosmopolis’

Spree includes 'The We and the I,' 'Broken,' 'Fan's Hope'

David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis” has been picked up by NonStop Ent. ahead of its Cannes competish slot Friday, which features among a slew of deals announced by the Scandinavian and Baltic distributor Thursday.

NonStop’s Croisette shopping spree also includes Michel Gondry’s “The We and the I,” Rufus Norris’ Critics’ Week opener “Broken,” Morgan Spurlock’s “Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope,” the Taviani brothers’ Berlin winner “Caesar Must Die.” and Italian box office success “A.C.A.B. All Cops Are Bastards.”

NonStop previously acquired “Moonrise Kingdom” and “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” both of which play in Cannes’ official selection, in competition and Un Certain Regard respectively.
