Silver City: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Myriad Pictures has acquired all international rights to John Sayles' upcoming feature, Silver City. Maria Bello, Thora Birch, Chris Cooper, Richard Dreyfuss, Daryl Hannah, Danny Huston, Kris Kristofferson, Mary Kay Place and Tim Roth round out the cast.

Marking Sayles' 15th outing as both the writer and director on a project, "Silver" is a timely satire bearing various parallels with the present American government. The feature follows a grammatically challenged politician, from a long line of right-wing politicians, whose campaign, career and credibility are threatened by a mysterious corpse.
