UK-based sales outfit Blue Finch Films has sealed a slew of digital international deals on Mikey Alfred’s comedy North Hollywood, starring Vince Vaughn, Ryder McLaughlin and Miranda Cosgrove, on which musician Pharrell WIlliams is a producer.
The film has sold to Sky Cinema for the UK and Ireland, and to Australia and New Zealand (Kismet Movies), Scandinavia (Lucky Dogs), Germany (Telepool), Poland (Monolith Films), Japan (Rights Cube), South Africa (Gravel Road), the Middle East (Front Row) and Latin America (Prime Films).
North Hollywood has already been released online in the US by Brainstorm Media.
The coming-of-age comedy is the feature debut of Alfred, whose previous credits include as a co-producer on Jonah Hill’s Mid90s. It follows a teenager who must decide between choosing the future his father wants for him or following his dreams of becoming a professional skater.
In addition to Williams, the producers include Yusef Chabayta, Andrew Chennisi, Noah Centineo and Mimi Valdés.
The sales slate at Blue Finch also includes Sebastian Godwin’s psychological thriller Homebound, made as part of the UK’s low-budget Microwave initiative which is backed by the BFI and BBC Film.
