Miramax Set to Strike Again With "Tsotsi"

Miramax Films is reportedly set to make its second acquisition under the new leadership of Daniel Battsek. The company is expected to close a deal for North American rights to the Edinburgh and Toronto fest winner "Tsotsi" by Gavin Hood. During the Toronto fest, Miramax acquired rights to the doc "The Heart of the Game". Hood's "Tsotsi", based on Athol Fugard's novel, was described by the Toronto festival as tracing "six days in the lonely, violent life of Tsotsi (meaning 'thug'), a ruthless, young gang leader." Miramax neither confirmed nor denied the pact this weekend. As of late Sunday night a company spokesperson emphasized in a brief statement that the company, "declined to comment on the status of the aquisition." [Eugene Hernandez]
