Magnolia PIctures has picked up the documentary Queen of Versailles by Lauren Greenfield. Here’s the description: the film “tells the story of David and Jackie Siegel, a couple who began building the largest home in America before the housing crash put the couple’s fortune in jeopardy.”
Unlike most Magnolia titles, this film will get a theatrical release before going on demand.
LD Entertainment purchased Black Rock starring and directed by Katie Aselton. Here’s the description: “Black Rock also stars Lake Bell and Kate Bosworth as childhood friends who visit an island for a camping trip with Aselton’s character but run into trouble when they meet a trio of Iraq war veterans.”
The deal for this film also includes a theatrical release.
