2929 Productions has sold Vadim Perelman's drama In Bloom to Magnolia Pictures in the US and TVA Films in Canada.

The film got its world premiere at Toronto last Saturday and stars Uma Thurman as a woman haunted by the memory of a high school shooting. Evan Rachel Wood and Eva Amurri also star.

Emil Stern adapted the screenplay from Laura Kasischke's novel The Life Before Her Eyes. Cinetic Media and CAA represented the filmmakers.

The deal marks the first collaboration between 2929 Productions and its sister Magnolia Pictures, which are both part of Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban's film business Wagner/Cuban Companies.

'After talking to interested third parties, we realised that what they were offering was something we had in our own backyard at Magnolia,' 2929 Productions chief Marc Butan said.

'Because of our passion for In Bloom, it's gratifying to know that we're keeping the project close to home and that we'll have the opportunity to remain integrally involved as Magnolia brings Vadim's haunting film to American audiences.'

'In Bloom represents the type of eclectic and thought-provoking film that Magnolia has become known for,' Magnolia Pictures president Eamonn Bowles said. 'The opportunity to work with our friends and colleagues at 2929 - who know and appreciate this film better than anyone - will make the [release] that much more rewarding.'

Perelman, Aimee Peyronnet and Anthony Katagas produced and Wagner, Cuban and Butan served as executive producers.

The film has also sold to Japan (Desperado), France (Metropolitan), South Korea (Pan Cinema), Spain (Manga), Italy (Media Film), Benelux (MS Trading/Paradiso), Eastern Europe (MGN/Paradise), Israel (United King, Greece (Odeon), Indonesia (PT Amero), Middle East (ECS), Portugal (Lusomundo), Thailand (Jbic), and Turkey (Aqua Group).
