Hollywood’s obsession with ramming their immorality down our throats never seems to end.
EuropaCorp has acquired worldwide rights to “Miss Sloane,” Variety has learned.
The gun control drama was one of the hot packages going into this year’s Toronto International Film Festival and the auction for the picture was highly competitive. The film stars Jessica Chastain and is directed by John Madden of “Shakespeare in Love” fame. Production is slated to take place in 2016.
FilmNation put the project together. It will partner with EuropaCorp on the film and produce the picture.
“Miss Sloane” is the second notable sale of Toronto, after Paramount acquire the Meryl Streep biopic “Florence Foster Jenkins” earlier on Saturday. The market, which is now in its third day, has gotten off to a sluggish start, as buyers seem to be wary of the feverish bidding at Sundance last winter that led to a string of underperforming titles at the summer box office.
First-time screenwriter Jonathan Perera wrote “Miss Sloane,” which centers on a lobbyist’s efforts to push through tighter federal laws regulating guns. In the wake of the mass shootings in places like Newton, Conn. and the live television murder of two Virginia-based television reporters, the issue of gun violence is being hotly debated, making the project a hot-button one.
What’s particularly amusing about this film from our perspective as supporters of the Second Amendment is just how myopic this film really is; pushing for more gun control is a huge deal in left-wing, progressive coastal enclaves and a few redoubts of insanity sprinkled throughout the rest of the country, but it’s a dying issue everywhere else.
