Locally shot SIFF film gets distribution deal

As I ponder this morning’s intriguing Deadline.com item that reports on a new “Godfather”-themed edition of the game Monopoly (the game pieces will be a horse head, a cannoli, an olive oil tin, a limo, a dead fish, and a tommy gun, and no, I am not making this up), here’s some good news about a film that just recently screened at the Seattle International Film Festival. Matthew Lillard’s “Fat Kid Rules the World,” filmed all over Seattle and starring Jacob Wysocki (“Terri”), has been picked up for North American distribution by ARC Entertainment. The film will be launched with a series of promotional events around the country, intended to engage the movie’s punk rock fan base. (“Fat Kid” is about a near-suicidal teen who finds happiness as the drummer in a punk rock band.) Anybody see this movie at SIFF? I heard it drew big audiences. Congratulations to all involved.
