Lee Daniels' Sundance jury and audience winner, "Push" is finding homes abroad as New York-based sales company Elephant Eye makes international deals following the feature's recent lucrative deal with Lionsgate, which has resulted in a in a law suit for the film with The Weinstein Company.
Elephant Eye partners Kim Jose and David Robinson negotiated deals at the European Film Market, currently underway, for the film with Icon, which will take U.K. and Australian rights as well as Noble, which will handle the film in Scandinavian countries. Lebanon's Front Row, meanwhile, picked up the film for the Middle East.
"Everyone involved with 'Push' are thrilled to be working with such supportive and passionate distribution partners," Jose told indieWIRE in Berlin Tuesday morning. "Based on the audience reaction at our screening, 'Push' is not just an American story, it travels universally."
