Sundance ’10: Bidding War Over Vincenzo Natali’s ‘Splice’

A bidding war broke out at Sundance last weekend over Vincenzo Natali’s sci-fi entry Splice (review), which stars Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley. But it wasn’t the typical contest in which distributors vie to see who is willing to pay the most for rights to the hot movie of the moment. Instead, the suitors were offering service deals, under which a movie’s producers pay them an upfront fee and a percentage of boxoffice returns to get the film into theaters (read more here)…. While they also employ traditional acquisition deals, Bob Berney and Bill Pohlad’s new Apparition, the Weinstein Co., Newmarket Films, First Look Studios and Samuel Goldwyn Films were all in the race Tuesday to land a Splice theatrical agreement with some sort of service deal. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment already owns home video rights, which could help Samuel Goldwyn Films win out. Click the title above for more info on the movie.
