Sundance may be over for another year, but as Gordon Gekko mercilessly taught us: money never sleeps. So even though Park City has born witness to their annual mass exodus, there are still some films hanging around waiting to be bought and we have news of six films that have snagged distribution deals.

Over the last decade or so, French star Julie Delpy has been a relatively rare presence on screen. Sure, there have been a few appearances -- Lasse Hallstrom's "The Hoax" and Jim Jarmusch's "Broken Flowers" among them -- but for the most part, when she's starred in a film, it's been in pictures that she's written and directed, like "The Countess," "Le Skylab," "2 Days In Paris" and "2 Days In New York," the sequel which just premiered at Sundance.

Taking place a few years after “Two Days in Paris,” with the events from that film summed up in a puppet show, Jack (played Adam Goldberg) is gone and Marion (Delpy) lives in New York with her boyfriend Mingus (Chris Rock), and their respective children from previous relationships. Both lead artistic New York lives as Marion is about to open a photo exhibit and Mingus is writing for the Village Voice along with hosting two radio shows. Marion's father Jeannot (Albert Delpy) and sister Rose (Alexia Landeau) are coming to New York to spend time as a family following the death of Marion's mother. The promise of foreign customs and crazy old men is fulfilled the second we meet Dad, locked in customs and removing the sausages he strapped to his chest.

Julie Delpy’s last two directorial efforts, 2009’s “The Countess” and this year’s “Le Skylab,” have yet to receive U.S. theatrical distribution, but her latest Sundance entry, “2 Days in New York,” should get distributors’ tongues wagging. The sequel to Delpy’s 2007 critical hit “2 Days in Paris,” co-stars Chris Rock and features New York (obviously), a city that can charm the pants off most anyone. The follow-up to Delpy's charming and underrated film will find her character, Marion, relocated to New York with a new lover, Mingus (Rock), and a child; sorry folks, no Adam Goldberg this time around. Things will get a bit hairy as the clash of cultural backgrounds is brought to the fore when her family and ex-boyfriend come to visit. This stress will be compounded by an upcoming photo exhibit as well. If it's half as funny and painful as the first film, we're in.

The Sundance Film Festival unveiled their next batch of titles this afternoon centered around their out-of-competition and docmentary premieres and if you weren't previously excited for the fest in January, this should seal the deal. With an impressive array of titles from seasoned vets to the newcomers that Sundance was made for, 2012 in Park City should be a blast.
