iW NEWS | Sony Classics Bags "Baghead" for North America

In a late night deal concluded Thursday night, Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all North American rights to Sundance Film Festival Spectrum feature “Baghead” by Mark and Jay Duplass, an insider close to the deal confirmed. The deal, brokered by Submarine, is understood to be a mid to high six-figure pact. Others understood to be pursuing the horror/comedy hybrid include IFC, Netflix, Picturehouse, Samuel Goldwyn and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisition Group. In “Baghead,” four struggling actors head to a cabin in the woods to write a screenplay with roles for themselves and are thrust into a bizarre situation they could not have imagined. Sony Classics reps were not available for comment. [Brian Brooks]
