Paramount Vantage Acquires "Son of Rambow"

Paramount Vantage has acquired worldwide rights (excluding Japan, Germany, and French Free TV) to “Son of Rambow“, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The film, a coming-of-age comedy written and directed by Garth Jennings, is set in the 1980’s and centers on two young English boys who are inspired to make a Rambo movie of their own after seeing “Rambo: First Blood.” “‘Son of Rambow’ is a funny, moving and beautifully crafted tale of friendship and the poignant journey of filmmaking,” said John Lesher, President of Paramount Vantage, in a prepared statement. “We are thrilled to be distributing ‘Son of Rambow and welcome director Garth Jennings, and the creative visionaries Hammer & Tongs, to our family.” [Amy Bronson]
