'My Kid' Now a Classic

MykidSundance07logo_8 [Posted by Gregg Goldstein and Nicole Sperling] Sony Pictures Classics picked up worldwide rights to the art world docu-mystery "My Kid Could Paint That" for $1.85 million. Amir Bar-Lev's first feature follows four-year-old art world darling Marla Olmstead, who gained acclaim and more than $300,000 in sales before a "60 Minutes" profile questioned whether her work was an elaborate hoax. The low-budget docu had been the subject of much pre-fest buzz and interest. SPC completed the deal around the time of its first screening at the Prospector Square Theatre early Sunday. The film was produced by Bar-Lev and executive produced by John Battsek. Andrew Ruhemann served as co-executive producer and Stephen Dunn as co-producer. Submarine and CAA repped the project.

UPDATE: Here's The Bagger and The Reeler on the film.
