Revolver Entertainment and Picturehouse Entertainment have jointly acquired all UK rights to Josh Radnor’s Liberal Arts and Bart Layton’s feature documentary The Imposter. Both films premiered in Sundance this week. Liberal Arts stars Radnor along with Elizabeth Olsen, Zac Efron, Richard Jenkins, Allison Janney, John Magaro and Elizabeth Reaser. Radnor plays a divorcee who returns to his alma mater and falls for a sophomore (Olsen). Earlier this week, IFC acquired the film for North America. The Imposter is a stranger-than-fiction tale about the disappearance of a Texas boy who later resurfaces in Spain with a shocking story of kidnap and torture – but all is not what it seems. Produced by Dimitri Doganis, the film is an A&E IndieFilms, Film4 and Channel 4 presentation of a RAW Production in association with Red Box Films and Passion Pictures. Executive producers on the film are John Battsek and Simon Chinn. The Liberal Arts deal was struck between Revolver’s Dave Bishop, Picturehouse’s Clare Binns and Hyde Park International’s Ruzanna Kegeyan and Gersh’s Jennifer Dana and Jay Cohen. The Imposter deal was handled by Bishop, Binns and Protagonist CEO Ben Roberts. The joint acquisition is a first for Picturehouse and Revolver.
