Deals are still closing for Sundance 2012 films. IFC Films announced Tuesday that it has locked down all North American rights to writer-director Michael Walker’s comedy “Price Check.” The specialty distributor will release the film on VOD October 11 and in theaters November 16.
Parker Posey, Eric Mabius, Annie Parisse, Josh Pais, Cheyenne Jackson and Edward Herrmann star in the story of a family man working at a supermarket chain who gets an unexpected boost from a new manager who pushes him up the corporate ladder. Dolly Hall produced.
“Michael Walker has made a thoughtful and impressive film featuring a return to the screen by Parker Posey that is a gift to her fans and one of her most hilarious, nuanced performances,” said Sundance Selects/IFC Films president Jonathan Sehring. "We're also happy to be working with our long time friend Dolly Hall."
Sundance Selects/IFC Films exec Arianna Bocco negotiated the deal with Josh Braun of Submarine Entertainment on behalf of the filmmakers.
A sister label of IFC Midnight and Sundance Selects, IFC Films recently picked up a handful of films at the Toronto International Film Festival, including “Byzantium," "Frances Ha," “Inescapable” and “The Reluctant Fundamentalist.” The company will release “On the Road” in December.
