Variety reported that, according to Wild Bunch’s Vincent Maraval, aside from a pending U.K. deal, the company has sold all of its portion of the Passion territories. These include Scandinavia (sold to Scanbox), Russia (to Top Film), and Brazil (to Playarte). Screen Daily reported earlier this week that Wild Bunch had sold Passion to Gussi for Mexico. Wild Bunch is splitting sales on the De Palma film with SBS Productions, which is headed by Passion producer Said Ben Said. SBS already sold theatrical and DVD/VOD rights for Germany and Switzerland to Ascot Elite at last February’s Berlin fest market. Also at the Berlin market, SBS sold Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg) to Lumiere, and France to ARP Sélection. SBS is also selling rights for the U.S., Spain and Italy. Many thanks to De Palma a la Mod for posting this.
