Fortissimo Lands Guest’s “For Your Consideration”

Fortissimo Lands Guest's "For Your Consideration"

Fortissimo Films has announced its acquisition of worldwide sales rights, outside North America, for Christopher Guest‘s “For Your Consideration.” The company made the deal with Shangri-La Entertainment (which produced the film with Castle Rock Entertainment) following the film’s debut at the Toronto International Film Festival last month. Next up for the movie, which takes a comedic look at the movie business, awards season and independent filmmaking, is a screening at the 2006 London Film Festival and screenings at next month’s American Film Market. Warner Independent Pictures will open the film in the U.S. on November 17th. “Wouter [Barendrecht] and I are delighted to be in the Christopher Guest business,” said Fortissimo’s Michael J. Werner in a statement, “We saw how amazingly well the audiences in Toronto responded to the film and immediately sought the international sales rights from Shangri-La Entertainment. The glowing reviews the film received the following morning confirmed our judgement that ‘For Your Consideration’ is yet another tour de force from Chris.” [Eugene Hernandez]
