Magnolia Pictures bought the rights to Craig Zobel's satirical black comedy, Great World of Sound; Plum Pictures is producing.

The film follows two Southerners who unwittingly become part of a record industry scam operation, notes The Hollywood Reporter; it combines narrative filmmaking with lead actors Patrick Healy and Kene Holliday and documentary-style 'auditions' from aspiring performers unaware at the time that they were part of a film.

Great World of Sound has an early fall release scheduled.
