ThinkFilm and City Lights Home Entertainment have partnered to acquire "The Ten" for $4.5 million, according to Gregg Goldstein in The Hollywood Reporter. ThinkFilm will oversee theatrical distribution, while City Lights will handle DVD and digital distribution. Both companies will share the revenue from all distribution, according to the trade paper. "We thought it was a hilarious, funny, movie, and that if we brought it to an audience with brains and style, it would have the ability to do better than [ThinkFilm's] 'The Aristocrats' or 'Strangers with Candy,'" ThinkFilm head of US theatrical Mark Urman told HR. The film's large cast includes Paul Rudd, Winona Ryder, and Famke Janssen.
