Image Entertainment has acquired US rights to “The Cobbler” for $3.5 million, an individual with knowledge of the negotiations has told TheWrap.
Focus Features and A24 were also in the mix. “The Cobbler” has not premiered yet in Toronto but buyers caught the New York comedy at a P&I screening earlier this week.
WME Global and the Gersh Agency are finalizing the deal now. An official announcement is expected shortly.
