INSIDE WORD | Sony Classics Closing Three Cannes Deals

Even as Variety proclaimed a dearth of Cannes dealmaking for U.S. based companies, Sony Pictures Classics was closing deals for three festival titles. Word on the Croisette Friday had the company acquiring North American rights to The Dardenne Brothers‘ “The Silence of Lorna” from the Cannes competition, James Toback‘s documentary “Tyson” and Bent Hamer‘s Un Certain Regard section film, “O’Horten.” Company execs wouldn’t comment on the record yesterday, but SPC had already sealed two of the three sales by Friday.
