2929 International, the Los Angeles-based foreign distribution arm of 2929 Entertainment, has acquired international sales rights to soccer family drama "Gracie" by Davis Guggenheim ("An Inconvenient Truth"), the company's president Shebnem Askin announced Tuesday. The film stars Academy Award nominee Elisabeth Shue ("Leaving Las Vegas"), Andrew Shue ("Melrose Place"), Dermot Mulroney ("Zodiac") and Carly Schroeder ("Firewall") as Gracie. Set in 1978 and inspired by the Shue family's real life events, "Gracie" is the story of a sixteen-year-old girl, who, after a family tragedy changed her life, fought for and won the right to play competitive soccer on her high school boy's team. "We are delighted to be in business with such remarkable filmmakers," commented 2929 CEO Todd Wagner in a statement. "Davis Guggenheim is one of the hottest directors in the business and this film is evidence of his tremendous talents. We believe this film has themes and characters that will connect with audiences worldwide and we anticipate them being as enthused as we are." [Brian Brooks]
