LA-based Senator International has struck a raft of sales on Clare Kilner's romantic comedy Something Borrowed, the first title in its multi-picture co-financing deal with Gold Circle Films.
Medusa has picked up all rights for Italy, Village Roadshow for Australia and New Zealand and TMC for Turkey, joining a list of territories that committed to buying the film at Cannes.
Principal photography is now complete on Something Borrowed, which stars Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney.
The story centres on a single woman who, fearful of seeing her ex-fiance at her sister's wedding, hires a male escort to pose as her boyfriend.
The film marks Gold Circle's first romantic comedy since its worldwide hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding and shot in the UK, where Gold Circle has teamed up with Entertainment Film Distributors to distribute the film.
Senator International is also handling international sales on Gold Circle's White Noise, a supernatural thriller starring Michael Keaton and Deborah Kara Unger.
Other high-profile titles on its slate include the drama Hooligans, which Senator International will launch at MIFED and stars Elijah Wood and Charlie Hunnam; the historical drama The Bridge Of San Luis Rey starring Robert De Niro, Kathy Bates and Gabriel Byrne; The Assassination Of Richard Nixon, a drama starring Sean Penn, Naomi Watts and Don Cheadle; and the dramatic thriller The Lazarus Child, which stars Andy Garcia, Frances O'Connor and Angela Bassett for Eagle Pictures.
Gold Circle recently wrapped production on Jiminy Glick In LaLaWood and plans to shoot Long Weekend, Flypaper, 2:22 and The Last Two People On Earth in early 2004.
