Cannes: John Travolta’s ‘Criminal Activities’ Sells to Image

Image Entertainment has acquired North American and U.K. rights to the John Travolta thriller “Criminal Activities,” directed by Jackie Earle Haley.

Diamond Pictures is handling international sales in Cannes. WME Global repped the filmmakers.
