CBS Films Confirms F Word Deal

Article excerpt

UPDATED SEPT 10: CBS Films top brass said on Tuesday evening (September 10) they had acquired US rights to Michael Dowse's The F Word in a deal understood to fall just shy of $3m.

Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan star in the offbeat romance and No Trace Camping's David Gross, Jesse Shapira and Jeff Arkuss produced the film along with Macdara Kelleher and Andre Rouleau.

Focus Features' $7m Saturday swoop on world rights to Jason Bateman's feature directorial debut Bad Words and The Weinstein Company's $7m spend on Can A Song Save Your Life? a day later remain the biggest deals.

On Monday, Millennium Entertainment paid $3m for John Turturro's Fading Gigolo and A24 kicked things off last Friday with a $1.25m move on US rights to Steven Knight's Locke.

At time of writing interest continued to swirl around Horns, Supermensch and Mike Flanagan's Midnight Madness entry Oculus, among others.REVIEWS
