Fortissimo Lands Guest's "For Your Consideration"

By Indiewire | Indiewire October 3, 2006 at 10:26AM

Fortissimo Films has announced its acquisition of worldwide sales rights, outside North America, for Christopher Guest's "For Your Consideration." The company made the deal with Shangri-La Entertainment (which produced the film with Castle Rock Entertainment) following the film's debut at the Toronto International Film Festival last month. Next up for the movie, which takes a comedic look at the movie business, awards season and independent filmmaking, is a screening at the 2006 London Film Festival and screenings at next month's American Film Market. Warner Independent Pictures will open the film in the U.S. on November 17th. "Wouter [Barendrecht] and I are delighted to be in the Christopher Guest business," said Fortissimo's Michael J. Werner in a statement, "We saw how amazingly well the audiences in Toronto responded to the film and immediately sought the international sales rights from Shangri-La Entertainment. The glowing reviews the film received the following morning confirmed our judgement that 'For Your Consideration' is yet another tour de force from Chris." [Eugene Hernandez]
