Sundance 2011: LIKE CRAZY Sells For $4 Million To Paramount
Paramount Pictures has purchased Like Crazy from director Drake Doremus for $4 million after an all-night bidding session.
The repored selling price from EW is a solid amount for an indie film such as Like Crazy. The purchase will allow the film to be seen by a wider audience. Doremus brought his raunchy road-trip film Douchebag to Sundance last year. Ben York Jones, who starred in Douchebag, co-wrote the the script with Doremus forLike Crazy, which was produced by Jonathan Schwartz and Andrea Sperling.
I enjoyed Going the Distance so I will probably enjoy the story of Like Crazy. I also am a big fan of Yelchin. Be sure to read a review of Like Crazy from GeekTyrant HERE.
