According to The Hollywood Reporter, U.S. indie ThinkFilm has snapped up worldwide distribution rights to comedian Bob Saget's mockumentary Farce of the Penguins, ThinkFilm president and CEO Jeff Sackman said Wednesday.
The deal was struck for the low seven figures. Saget is writing, directing and will narrate an adult-oriented voice-over with authentic and fake wildlife footage. He's also producing with David Permut, who brainstormed the idea with Saget after watching March of the Penguins and hearing the comedian riff on the narration at a private screening this year.
A poster depicting penguins wearing a bra and panties with the tagline, "What happens in Antarctica stays in Antarctica" already has been created to attract buyers at this year's American Film Market.
