If you’re keeping score at home, then aside from the Buried bidding, Splice has a couple bidders and a deal is likely soon. But I’m hearing the biggest money deal might go to the John Wells-directed The Company Men. Then again it carries a bigger budget and more stars than most Sundance efforts. Aside from the Sundance preem, screenings are being held for studios back in Hollywood. Two offers are on the table, with another coming. CAA, which is selling both, is also near a deal for Catfish. Elsewhere, buyers liked Josh Radnor’s happythankyoumoreplease as well as Animal Kingdom, and Happy. And buyers are sparked for Blue Valentine. Note to buyers: enough foreplay. How about consummating?
