IFC Films is in final negotiations to acquire U.S. rights for the war comedy “A Perfect Day,” starring Benicio Del Toro and Tim Robbins, Variety has learned.
The movie, which premiered at the Directors’ Fortnight program at the Cannes Film Festival, follows a day in the life of a group of overseas aid workers with conflicting opinions about love and war. It was directed by Fernando Leon de Aranoa (“Princesas”) from a script co-written by him and Diego Farias.
“A Perfect Day” was produced by MediaPro’s Jaume Roures and de Aranoa (through his production company Reposado), and exec produced by Patricia de Muns and Javier Mendez.
The deal was negotiated by WestEnd Films’ Eve Schoukroun, who worked on behalf of the filmmakers, and Arianna Bocco at IFC Films.
