International buyers have swiped right on Anna Kendrick’s directorial debut, The Dating Game.
The upcoming thriller was snatched up by multiple international distributors at the Toronto International Film Festival following an in-person pitch by Kendrick and AGC Studio’s CEO Stuart Ford,
Telepool pre-bought The Dating Game for Germany, while Signature Entertainment took rights in the UK and Ireland;
Sun Distribution bought Latin America, Spain and Portugal; VVS Films scored Canadian rights; Lucky Red took Italian rights, and Roadshow Films landed the film for Australia and New Zealand,
Kendrick will also produce The Dating Game and star in the stranger-than-fiction true story as Cheryl Bradshaw, a bachelorette on the hit 1970s TV matchmaking show
AGC also racked up pre-sales on Hitman from director/writer/actor team Richard Linklater and Glen Powell.
Another based-on-a-true-story genre film, the noir comedy stars Powell as a sought-after hitman who is secretly working for the cops. Adria Arjona co-stars.
Shooting on Hitman is set to kick off in New Orleans in October.
