Quick update on the big news, interviews, and reviews coming out of Sundance…

  • Check out an early review for The Winning Season (above), which stars Sam Rockwell as, “an asshole alcoholic busboy who is given a chance to coach his local girl’s high school varsity basketball team.”Sounds exciting! [/Film]
  • Sundance distrubution sales may be lagging, but at least Michael Jai White’s Black Dynamite got bought! Sony Pictures Worldwide picked up the comedic blaxploitation pic for a cool 2 million. [THR]
  • Check out an interview with music video turned film director Marc Webb, as he talks about his latest project,  500 Days of Summer. [FirstShowing]
  • Negotiations between buyers and sellers are getting hectic! “It’s kind of gotten out of control; I’ve never seen anything like it,” one buyer said. “Every agent seems to be repping every movie.” Seems as if  there are too many cooks in the kitchen. [THR]
