LongTale International has acquired worldwide rights to Pine Hill/Tousi's comedy Looking For Palladin starring Ben Gazzara, Talia Shire and David Moscow.

Andrzej Krakowski wrote and directed the story of a brash Hollywood talent agent who travels to Guatemala to track down a retired Oscar-winning actor.

LongTale International will screen the film to buyers at the Cannes market on May 16.

The company's Cannes slate includes two recent acquisitions about Tibetan history and culture - Prince Of The Himalayas and Milarepa: Magician, Murderer, Saint.
