Sony Pictures Classics has bought the North American rights to “Paris Can Wait,” the feature directorial debut of Eleanor Coppola.
Coppola previously directed the famed 1991 documentary “Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse,” about the tumultuous making of the classic Vietnam war epic “Apocalypse Now,” which was directed by her husband Francis Ford Coppola. She won an Emmy and several critics prizes for the acclaimed documentary, but it was snubbed by the Oscars. She has been in the industry for five decades now.
Michael Zakin, Molly Thompson, Rob Sharenow, Tanya Lopez, and Lisa Hamilton Daly all serve as executive producers on “Paris Can Wait.” Fred Roos produced.
ICM Partners negotiated the U.S. deal.
In August, the studio acquired Pedro Almodóvar’s film library, including “Pepi, Luci, Bom;” “Labyrinth of Passion;” “Dark Habits” and “What Have I Done to Deserve This?”
Sony Pictures Classics has set a December 21 theater release for his film “Julieta.”
