Sony Pictures Classics has acquired US, German and Scandinavian rights to Paul Haggis' ensemble drama "Third Person," starring Adrien Brody, James Franco, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, Liam Neeson and Maria Bello. The film world premiered at this year's Toronto International Film Festival.
Here's the synopsis, per Sony:
"Third Person" wends its way through three cities and three tales. The various stories, situated in Paris, Rome, and New York, are, at first glance, all separate, but Haggis effortlessly makes connections among them as the film unwinds, concentrating on three men and their romantic entanglements. Gradually, each one of these stories unveils its secrets, testifying to the whims and complexities of life. Surfaces are deceptive in the Haggis universe, but as each story is explored we discover untold pleasures and pains. Life is never easy: it can be deceptive, inhabited by anger and jealousy, but it can also be surprisingly joyous.
Said Sony, "Paul Haggis is one of our great movie storytellers and 'Third Person' is one of his best works featuring an exceptional cast led by Liam Neeson (also at his best). We are excited to bring 'Third Person' to American audiences."
Sony Pictures Classics, CAA and Paradigm negotiated the deal. No release date has been set of yet.
