"We're excited to be working with Miley Cyrus as she transitions from child phenomenon to grown-up star. She's got charisma and talent to burn, and So Undercover shows her to be a deft comedic actress," said Glasser. "This deal is a testament to the savvy instincts of Peter Lawson and his acquisitions team in scouting and securing those projects that will enhance TWC's release slate."
"We are thrilled to know that the film is now in great hands with Harvey Weinstein and his amazingly talented team at The Weinstein Company," said Sinclair and East. Exclusive Films International (EFI), the International sales and marketing arm of Exclusive, is handling worldwide sales of this title and has sold most major foreign territories prior to and while at the European Film Market in Berlin last week.
The deal was negotiated for TWC by Glasser, Peter Lawson, Executive Vice President, Acquisitions, and Laine Kline, Executive Vice President, Business and Legal Affairs; and for Exclusive Media Group by Andy Mayson, Managing Director and CFO, and CAA, which also arranged financing for the film.
