Crowd-pleasers get snatched up

Myriad Pictures has added Josh Radnor’s Sundance crowd-pleaser "happythankyoumoreplease" to its EFM slate after acquiring international rights.

CEO and president Kirk D’Amico and vice-president of production Amanda Blue negotiated the deal over the weekend with Andrew Hurwitz from Schreck Rose Dapello Adams & Hurwitz.

D’Amico will commence sales in Berlin on the ensemble film, which received its world premiere on Friday (January 22) and follows six New Yorkers on the cusp of adulthood as they juggle the demands of love and friendship.

David Jourdan’s T&C Pictures International has acquired international rights from WME Global to Adrian Grenier’s documentary "Teenage Paparazzo."

Jourdan closed the deal with WME Global’s Mark Ankner on Friday following the world premiere and will commence sales at the EFM in Berlin next month. WME Global represents North American rights.

"Paparazzo" follows Grenier, star of the HBO series "Entourage," as he turns the tables on a 13-year old paparazzo and attempts to mentor the youngster and in the process try to understand society’s obsession with celebrity.
