2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Adapted Screenplay

11 July 2017 3:39 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sundance broke out Dee Rees’ post-World War II epic “Mudbound,” a script of sweeping ambition and detail adapted by Rees and Virgil Williams from the Hilary Jordan novel. Netflix picked up the movie for the Sundance 2017 record of $12.5 million, and plans a full-on Oscar campaign, despite a limited theatrical day-and-date release.

Also rising to instant Oscar contention was Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me By Your Name,” an elegiac summer love story set in Italy, between a vacationing teenager (Timothee Chalumet) and his father’s researcher (Armie Hammer). Sony Pictures Classics will hit the fall festivals with the critics’ darling.

Cannes introduced Todd Haynes’ cinematic tour-de-force “Wonderstruck,” adapted by Brian Selznick from his own graphic novel, which intercuts two periods, the 20s and the 70s, in silent black-and-white and color with sound. The film is the Centerpiece gala at the New York Film Festival.

Also debuting at Cannes was director-prize-winner Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled, »

Berlinale: Armando Iannucci’s ‘Stalin’ Proves a Hot Efm Title for Gaumont (Exclusive)

12 February 2017 11:45 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On top of selling to IFC Films for North America rights, Armando Iannucci’s “The Death of Stalin” has pre-sold to several other territories at the Efm, where Gaumont is shopping the pic.

Gaumont has inked pre-sales for Switzerland (Ascot Elite), Poland (Kinoswiat), Greece and Romania (Odeon), Israel (Lev films), former Yugoslavia (McF Megacom), Baltics (Latvian Theatrical Distribution). Previous sales were closed with Madman in Australia and Concorde in Germany.

Gaumont is in negotiations to close deals for the U.K., Latin America, Hungary, Cis, and Portugal.

The sale to IFC Films followed a bidding war that involved several distributors, including A24 and The Orchard, according to insiders.

Adapted from the French graphic novel by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin, “The Death of Stalin” is a comic look at how Joseph Stalin’s stroke in 1953 threw the Ussr into chaos and inspired a mad power grab among his top advisers. »

IFC Films has bought North American rights to “The Death of Stalin” out of the Berlin Film Festival’s European Film Market, Variety has learned.

Closed by Gaumont, the sale was in the seven figure range. A bidding war involved several distributors, including A24 and The Orchard, according to insiders.  The film is a comic look at how Joseph Stalin’s stroke in 1953 threw the Ussr into chaos and inspired a mad power grab among his top advisers. It reunites IFC with Armando Iannucci. The company released the writer and director’s “In the Loop,” which earned Iannucci an Oscar nomination for its screenplay. He also created the Emmy-winning political satire “Veep” for HBO. Adrian McLoughlin plays Stalin.
