First Look feeds meter for 'Special'
CANNES -- First Look Studios has nabbed worldwide rights to Special, featuring Michael Rapaport as a comic book-loving meter maid who finds he has developed extraordinary superpowers. In Hal Haberman and Jeremy Passmore's first feature film, which premiered at January's Sundance Film Festival, Rapaport's ordinary Joe takes a mind-altering drug that sends him into a world of defying gravity, reading people's minds and walking through walls. First Look also has bought U.S. rights to the Northern Ireland action-thriller Johnny Was, executive producer Ben Katz said Saturday, adding that the movie also has been accepted for the Karlovy Vary film festival. That movie stars former soccer player Vinnie Jones (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Patrick Bergin (Played), former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and the Who's Roger Daltrey.
