Mystery Chinese Buyer Acquires Anne Hathaway's Sci-Fi Film 'Colossal'
U.S. rights to Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis' Colossal, directed by Nacho Vigalondo, have been acquired by an unspecified Chinese-based media company. The rights were sold by CAA and Voltage.
The buyer paid somewhere in the mid-seven figure range, and guarantees a significant 2017 theatrical release. The company will be revealed in the coming weeks when it announces an investment into a new U.S. studio.
Hathaway plays a woman in the film who becomes convinced that the power of her mind is connected to the rampage of a giant lizard that has begun destroying Tokyo, and only she can stop the destruction.
