Roadside Croons to US Rights for “Colma”

Roadside Croons to US Rights for "Colma"

Roadside Attractions has picked up worldwide rights to Richard Wong‘s “Colma: The Musical,” the company announced Wednesday afternoon. The film is a musical comedy about “three recent high school grads who find themselves at a crossroads in their hometown of Colma, California, a cemetery-suffused suburb of San Francisco renowned for having more dead residents than live ones.” The three teens each rebel in their own ways against the moribund reality of their hometown while making their way into adulthood. Along the way they burst into song and dance around cemeteries, shopping malls and college keg parties during the film’s thirteen musical numbers. Roadside Attractions plans a summer release in the U.S. for the film, which had its world debut at the recent San Francisco International Asian-American Film Festival. Roadside co-president Eric d’Arbeloff negotiated the deal with sales agent Nguyen “Wyn” Tran of The Institution, for the filmmakers. [Brian Brooks]
