Fox Searchlight is the latest to break out the wallet, picking up most worldwide rights to the competition film Homework Sunday night for around $2 million not long after its world premiere earlier in the day.
First-timer Gavin Wiesen wrote and directed the ICM-repped film, which the Fox indie shop plans to release in 2011. Emma Roberts and Freddie Highmore star as high school seniors who form a bond that veers toward romance in their last year of school. Michael Angarano, Elizabeth Reaser, Rita Wilson, Sam Robards and Blair Underwood also star in the film.
“Homework is a real coming of age story, it touched us with its genuine performances, depth and wit,” Searchlight president Nancy Utley said. “We’re thrilled to continue Searchlight’s tradition of being a home to first time filmmakers.”
P. Jennifer Dana, Kara Baker, Gia Walsh and Darren Goldberg produced the film.
Searchlight execs Ray Strache, Tony Safford and Megan O’Brien negotiated the deal with ICM’s Hal Sadoff. Goldcrest Films is handling International sales.
