Son Of Rambow Bidding War

What did I tell you? Son of Rambow has ignited one of the biggest bidding wars in Sundance history. Variety have a piece on the ongoing negotiations, placing Paramount Vantage ahead of Fox Searchlight and the already resigned Miramax.

One executive described the film as "Billy Elliot as directed by Tim Burton" while Variety draw parallels with Little Miss Sunshine - today nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, and deservedly so. Could this be a hint of what is to come for Rambow in the next 12 months?

There's months worth of Son of Rambow coverage here on film ick, including the synopsis, stills, comments from director Garth Jennings, the poster (a premiere!) and much, much more. Use the tags below and the search box to find it all.

Sold for $8 million to Paramount Vantage apparently. Not bad going.
