The Santa Monica-based sales agent will handle international rights in Cannes on the documentary that recently opened SXSW.

Ondi Timoner wrote and directed Brand: A Second Coming, in which the comedian throws himself into political activism while on a quest for happiness.

The film features appearances by David Lynch, Noel Gallagher, Oliver Stone, Mike Tyson and Stephen Merchant, among others.

“We were so impressed with Ondi Timoner’s provocative and at times even shocking portrait of Russell Brand”, said Myriad president and CEO Kirk D’Amico. “She was able to get truly amazing footage that shows us this extraordinarily brilliant comedian – warts and all.”

Timoner produced and her Interloper Films associate Nick Corcorran served as co-producer. Gareth Roy served as co-producer and Andrew Antonio is executive producer.

Myriad director of production and acquisitions Theresa Won brought the project to the company. Senior vice-president of business and legal affairs Thomas Loftus negotiated international sales rights with Wme Global »
