IFC Films has acquired domestic distribution rights to Jesse Peretz's digital semi-improvisational comedy The Chateau which had its world premiere at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival this week. Fortissimo Film Sales has international rights.
Starring Paul Rudd and Romany Malco as two American brothers who inherit a small castle in the south of France, the film was produced by GreeneStreet Films, from whom IFC bought it, in association with Forensic Films and Crossroads Films. Scott Macauley and Robin O'Hara were producers; John Penotti, Fisher Stevens, Bradley Yonover and Dolly Hall were executive producers.
The deal was negotiated by John Sloss of Cinetic Media and Vickie Cherkas of GreenStreet with Bob Berney and Jonathan Sehring of IFC. Peretz is represented by AMG and ICM.
