Sony Pictures Classics has scooped up the movie in a deal that is apparently worth seven figures, and is likely one of the big buys of the fest. Some of us at The Playlist pondered if the movie might make more sense as a limited theatrical/VOD play, but this acquisition suggests that Sony are confident there are more than enough people out there who are going to want to head to theaters to catch up with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy's, Jesse and Celine. And frankly, we don't doubt that's true.
No word yet on when it will hit theaters, but we'd guess (and hope) that by the end of 2013 we'll be in Greece to see where these two are now in their lives. [Deadline]
