Joshua in the Searchlight

By S.T. VanAirsdale

As foreshadowed here yesterday, another NYC film is off the market: Gregg Goldstein and Nicole Sperling reported early this morning that worldwide rights (except for Canada, I guess; I wouldn't let them see it either) for Joshua, George Ratliff's thriller about a haunted (and haunting) New York boy and his family, sold to Fox Searchlight for an amount in the neighborhood of $4 million. The film was the focus of some fairly intense bidding speculation on Sunday, with the deal closing late in the day and reported this morning around 2:30 a.m. (Click here for The Reeler's pre-Sundance interview with George Ratliff.)
