RADiUS-TWC "Lovelace"

"Lovelace," Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's pic starring Amanda Seyfriend about "Deep Throat" pornstar Linda Lovelace, has gone to RADiUS-TWC at the Porndance--er, Sundance--Film Festival. They snagged the US rights to the film right after its late Thursday screening. Seyfriend is joined by Peter Sarsgaard, Hank Azaria, Wes Bentley, Adam Brody, Bobby Cannavale, James Franco, Debi Mazar, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts, Sharon Stone, Chloe Sevigny and Juno Temple. RADiUS is "over the moon" to have the film; they plan a fall release. At the fest they've also picked up "Twenty Feet From Stardom," "Concussion" and most recently "Inequality For All." The Weinstein Co. picked up "Fruitvale."

Competition doc "Inequality For All" centers on economic policy expert Robert Reich as he reveals the widening income inequality and its effects on our society.

"Toy House," meanwhile, has gone to CBS Films for North American rights. The drama comes from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, and stars Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias, Nick Offerman, and Megan Mullally. It centers on three boys trying to live in the wilderness. CBS Films notes its similarities to "Stand By Me" and "The Goonies" and calls it "a loving throwback for a new generation.”

Here's more on Sundance acquisitions.
