DreamWorks SKG, which financed and co-produced Australian comedy Walk The Talk on the back of director Shirley Barrett's debut feature Love Serenade, has had a change of heart about releasing the film and is shopping domestic rights.

Evidently the film's disturbing nature did not fit well into the company's TV output deals, sitting uncomfortably alongside lavish, feelgood family movies such as The Legend Of Bagger Vance, Chicken Run and The Road To El Dorado. The film is a raw black comedy about a hapless dreamer played by Salvatore Coco who sets up a talent agency with the compensation money awarded to his paraplegic girlfriend.

Good Machine International, which has international sales rights, already sold the film to 20th Century Fox in Australia but is not involved in the domestic sale.
