ThinkFilm ponders '9/11' release

16 May 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

CANNES -- ThinkFilm on Saturday became the latest possible contender to release Michael Moore's controversial documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, screening In Competition at Cannes. As the movie mogul siblings are nearing their recently announced deal with Miramax parent Walt Disney Co. to personally buy back the project, multiple sources said ThinkFilm is now in the running to climb aboard. Newmarket Films, Focus Features and Lions Gate are already said to be in the mix. Miramax and ThinkFilm declined comment on the new development. While ThinkFilm's distribution apparatus is indeed smaller than some of the other possible suitors, its U.S. distribution chief, Mark Urman, hails from Lions Gate, where Miramax pulled off a very similar deal with Kevin Smith's too-hot-to-handle Dogma. Moore is known to be friendly with Urman and ThinkFilm has had previous success with a docu in Spellbound. »

14 April 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

LONDON -- International video and DVD distributor Universal Pictures International said Tuesday that it has appointed former Metrodome executive Ben Roberts as director of acquisitions. Based in London, the newly created post is effective immediately and will see Roberts work closely with Universal's territory management and L.A. acquisitions teams to acquire product across theatrical, video, DVD and television rights. Local-language acquisition activity will continue to be managed by the relevant operating companies, the company said in a statement. UPI president Pete Smith said of Roberts: "His role will continue to drive our strategic goal of expanding global acquisitions activity." Roberts was general manager at U.K. distributor Metrodome, handling such titles as Monster, Spellbound and Donnie Darko. He also held the positions of director of sales and acquisitions and head of sales during his five-year stint at Metrodome. »

'King' earns Eddie's honor

16 February 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King added another notch on its awards-season belt Sunday as the final installment of Peter Jackson's epic trilogy earned the American Cinema Editors' honor for dramatic feature. King editor Jamie Selkirk, on hand for the 2004 ACE Eddie Awards ceremony at the Beverly Hills Hotel, praised the "fantastic" direction and script delivered by Jackson and his team and called his work on the LOTR features during the past six years a "wonderful experience." He also noted dryly how much of a gamble the undertaking was for all involved. "It would have been a bit of a disaster if the first one had failed," Selkirk said. The trio of Craig Wood, Stephen Rivkin and Arthur Schmidt got the nod for comedy/musical feature for cutting the Johnny Depp swashbuckler Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. The documentary trophy went to Yana Gorskaya for Spellbound, a chronicle of the national spelling-bee competition. »
