LA-based sales outfit Curb Entertainment has acquired international rights to Hayland/Margolis Productions' ensemble drama Bug which stars Jamie Kennedy, Brian Cox, Ed Begley Jr, Sarah Paulson, John Carroll Lynch and Michael Hitchcock.

The film, which won the audience choice award at the 2002 Santa Barbara Film Festival, tells the interconnected stories of a group of strangers in LA and the unknown havoc they cause in each others' lives. Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay, who co-scripted last year's crazy/beautiful and this summer's The Tuxedo, directed the film.

The deal was negotiated by Carole Curb and Wendy Reeds for Curb Entertainment, Alan Grodin of Weissmann, Wolff, Bergman, Coleman, Silverman & Holmes LLP and producer Kate Margolis for Hayland/Margolis Productions.
