EXCLUSIVE: Bleiberg has added a title to its Cannes slate in the shape of the Bentonville Film Festival-bound Susan Sarandon family caper.
Bleiberg Entertainment has picked up international sales to Kevin Kaufman’s Kid Witness, set to receive its world premiere in early May at Geena Davis’ Bentonville Film Festival.
Ripley Sobo stars in the story about a youngster who witnesses a New York kidnapping and sets out to find evidence to solve the crime with the help of a sympathetic detective.
Sobo appears in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice and starred opposite Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs’ daughter in the film of the same name.
Lev Gorn, Marc Menchaca, Aaron Sauter and Broad City’s Arturo Castro round out the key cast.
Kaufman wrote the screenplay and also produced through his Kaufman Films, with Doug Biro, Anthony Burke, Trey Duncan, Douglas Falconer, Roy Poretsky and Rick Tirelli serving as executive producers.
Bleiberg Entertainment’s Nick Donnermeyer negotiated the deal with the film-makers.
UTA represents both Sobo and Sarandon.
