Breaking: Another Sundance deal as A24 acquires The Spectacular Now, a coming-of-age saga that stars Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) and Miles Teller and premiered Friday in the U.S. Dramatic Competition. Deals are also imminent on Concussion, as well as Austenland, the latter of which has FilmDistrict, looking to partner with Exclusive, as the lead horse going into Sunday night. The deal should have been done already but was held up because Twilight Saga author Stephenie Meyer, who produced the film, couldn’t take part because she is Mormon and so they won’t close the deal officially until Monday. James Ponsoldt directed Spectacular from a script by (500) Days Of Summer scribes Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. Teller plays a high school senior extrovert who vows to save an introverted classmate (Woodley), and their relationship grows intense. Brie Larson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Kyle Chandler also star. »
