Distribution rights to Sundance title The Spectacular Now snapped up in France.
The Spectacular Now, directed by James Ponsoldt, has been sold by The Exchange to Eurozoom for all French distribution rights.
Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller won the 2013 Sundance US Dramatic Special Jury Award For Acting for their roles in the film. The cast also includes Brie Larson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kyle Chandler and Andre Royo.
The deal was brokered by Nat McCormick from The Exchange and Amel Lacombe from Eurozoom.
Brian O’Shea, CEO of The Exchange, said: “As A24 did with the US, Eurozoom will give the film the time and care for the French release.”
Lacombe described the films as “a wonderful movie that begins like a typical teen romcom only to catch us by surprise and evolve into a brilliant and heartfelt growing up experience.”
The Spectacular Now is currently on theatrical release in North America through A24.
