The 2015 Sundance Film Festival is coming to a close this weekend but MYWW is rounding up some of the priciest films that have sold so far!
Kickin’ off the list is Lionsgate. The company reportedly paid $2.5 Million for the rights to the psychological thriller starring Keanu Reeves, “Knock Knock.”
Nicole Kidman’s drama “Strangerland” was picked up for a mere $1.5 million by Alchemy but it was IFC Films who really dished out the cash for a film. The distribution company reportedly purchased “The D Train” starring Jack Black and James Marsden for a whopping $3 million!
Relativity also spent $3 Million for the rights to the comedy, “The Bronze,” which stars “The Big Bang Theory” actress Melissa Rauch.
Sold for the high price of $7 Million by Open Road was the coming of age story about struggling kids in the hood, “Dope,” which features Zoe Kravitz.
While all these production companies undoubtedly shelled out some major cash for their films, it was “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” that took home the top prize so far for most expensive film! The drama was bought by Fox Searchlight for a record breaking $12 Million! The hefty price tag beat out “Little Miss Sunshine” and “Hamlet 2’s” record of $10 Million!
