In the first major deal on the ground in Sundance, Bleecker Street and 30WEST have partnered to acquire USA rights to Colette, starring Keira Knightley.

The deal is said to be in the mid-seven figures. Set in turn-of-the-century Paris, the film stars Knightley as a young woman who writes a series of bestselling romance novels, but is forced to publish them under her husband's name. Sony Pictures Classics, Amazon and Fox Searchlight were all in the mix in the first all nighter auction. The director, Wash Westmoreland, even went so far as to dedicate "this special day to all the women who marched across our country" during his introduction to the screening.

"Colette" co-stars Dominic West, Fiona Shaw, and Denise Gough.

The Sundance Film Festival's world premiere of Colette could hardly have been more timely.

Colette will mark the first pairing for Bleecker Street and 30WEST, both relative newcomers that have enjoyed success with awards-season vehicles, which the film appears to be. Founded four years ago, Andrew Karpen's Bleecker Street nabbed best actor Oscar nominations for Viggo Mortensen (Captain Fantastic) and Bryan Cranston (Trumbo). 30WEST's team up with Bleecker Street is its second major Sundance development, after it acquired a majority stake in NEON, its partner in I, Tonya.

John DeFore's review in The Hollywood Reporter called Colette "an engaging literary coming-of-age story, and one embodied ably by its star". The film was produced by Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler of Killer Films, Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley of Number 9 Films, and Bold Films. CAA and Endeavor Content led the negotiations and while they asked for around $4 million upfront, they got a bit more than that.
