K5 nabs sales on ‘Reluctant Fundamentalist’

It will shop Nair's pic at Cannes

LONDON K5 has nabbed international sales rights to Mira Nair’s “The Reluctant Fundamentalist,” which it will shop to buyers at the Cannes Film Festival next month.

Pic, starring Kate Hudson, Riz Ahmed, Kiefer Sutherland, Liev Schreiber, Martin Donovan and Om Puri, is penned by Ami Boghani and William Wheeler from Mohsin Hamid’s book of the same name. Lydia Dean Pilcher produces the pic.

The political thriller follows a young Pakistani chasing corporate success on Wall Street, who finds himself embroiled in a conflict between his American dream, a hostage crisis and the enduring call of his family’s homeland.

It’s the second international production to receive financing from Qatar’s Doha Film Institute following last year’s “Black Gold.”

K5’s New York head of acquisitions Erica Moltey and K5 co-founder Oliver Simon acquired the film.

Deal was negotiated by K5’s other co-founder, Daniel Baur, Doha Film Institute’s Josh Grode and Pilcher.

K5 will show footage of the pic in Cannes alongside promos from Bille August’s “Night Train to Lisbon” and market screenings of “King Kelly” and “Girls Against Boys.”
