Paramount Acquires Middle Men

Paramount Acquires Middle Men

While the deal for Paramount to acquire George Gallo’s Middle Men, starring Luke Wilson and James Caan, was closed late in the year, details are just emerging. Essential Entertainment started handling sales for the Oxymoron Entertainment-funded movie at Cannes, reported Screen:

Middle Men is based on a true story and follows a straight laced businessman who builds the first online billing company dealing exclusively with adult entertainment. He finds himself caught between the Russian mob, a 23-year-old porn star and the FBI in his bid to make money.

It’s a worldwide distribution service deal: Paramount grabs a fee and recoups its costs, and the filmmakers kick in initial P & A money. This is the new norm. Studios acquire indie projects for a distribution fee, while movie backers supply prints and ad coin.
