Santa Monica-based Myriad Pictures has picked up all international rights to Sebastian Gutierrez’ comedy Women In Trouble and will commence sales here.
Carla Gugino, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Adrianne Palicki, Sarah Clarke and Josh Brolin star in the ensemble story about a day in the overlapping lives of ten different women.
CAA packaged the project and handled sold US rights to Screen Media, who plan a November release.
The film premiered at the 2009 SXSW Film Festival and is based on a screenplay by Gutierrez. The Venezuelan-born film-maker is in post-production on the sequel Elektra Luxx, based on Cugino’s character. His credits include Snakes On A Plane, Gothika, and Rise.
“Our entire team at Myriad loves this picture and Sebastian, from the first time we all met and talked about its unique and daring point of view,” Myriad president and CEO Kirk D’Amico said.
“He is a wonderfully imaginative film-maker with a great sense of humour, and brings out the very best in all his actors.”
