Paramount Famous takes North America on The Romantics
Paramount Famous Productions has made its first acquisition, taking all US and Canadian rights to Galt Niederhoffer’s Sundance premiere The Romantics.
The Team Todd, Plum Pictures, Benaroya Pictures and Four Of A Kind Productions film features an all-star ensemble of Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel, Anna Paquin, Malin Akerman, Adam Brody and Dianna Agron, with Candice Bergen and Elijah Wood.
The film will screen in Cannes and Simon Crowe of SC International is handling foreign sales.
Niederhoffer directed The Romantics from her own screenplay about a tight-knit group of college students who reunite for a wedding or two of their own.
Daniela Taplin Lundberg, Jennifer Todd, Suzanne Todd, Michael Benaroya, Ron Stein and Daniel Hendler produced.
“The response to the film has been extraordinary and I am delighted to have Paramount Famous Productions as our domestic distribution partner,” Lundberg said.
“We are thrilled to be in business with the talented team at Plum Pictures and their partners,” Paramount Famous Productions president Louis Feola said. “We have been tracking several of Plum’s projects and The Romantics is a great way to start.”
John Sloss of Cinetic Media negotiated the domestic deals with Paramount Famous.
