iW NEWS | IFC Gets Kalin's "Grace," Lin's "Game"

Tom Kalin‘s “Savage Grace” and Justin Lin‘s “Finishing the Game” have been acquired by IFC Entertainment. Kalin’s “Grace,” from this year’s Cannes Film Festival, is only the director’s second feature after his acclaimed early-90s indie, “Swoon” (although he produced “Go Fish” and “I Shot Andy Warhol”). Produced by Killer Films, Monfort Producciones, and Celluloid Dreams, Kalin’s film stars Julianne Moore in the true story of Barbara Baekeland. It was written by Howard Rodman. Lin’s “Finishing The Game,” which debuted earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, is a mockumentary about casting a replacement for Bruce Lee in an unfinished fictional film. Lin’s previous movies include the acclaimed “Better Luck Tomorrow” and also “Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.” Lin’s “Game” wil be released this year, while Kalin’s “Grace” is set or an ’08 debut.
