Essential Entertainment has signed on to rep overseas distribution rights on Barney’s Version, the Richard J. Lewis-directed film that has its world premiere at Venice September 10 and then moved to the Toronto fest two days later. Paul Giamatti plays the title role and the ensemble cast includes Dustin Hoffman, Minni Driver, Scott Speedman and Bruce Greenwood. A U.S. distribution deal is in the works, and E1 just bought Canadian rights.
