Summit plays 'Fair Game'
We told you a week ago that Summit would walk away with "Fair Game," the Sean Penn movie about the Joe Wilson-Valerie Plame affair that plays the upcoming Cannes Film Festival. Now they have, acquiring rights in several global territories as well as North America.
The movie played to distributors last week, with some finding it a little talky and others, including Focus and the Weinstein Co., also expressing interest, before Summit hammered out a deal. Get ready for "The Hurt Locker: The Return" next awards season.
