New York Times reporter Sharon Waxman got in touch with the Little Miss Sunshine principals — producer Jon Turtletaub and Cinetic Media’s John Sloss — and wrote this comprehensive piece about the five-year effort to finance the film and the 10-hour effort to sell it last Friday night and early Saturday morning. The victor was Fox Searchlight. The selling price was $10.5 million “plus 10 percent of all gross revenues on the film, a hefty figure that set tongues wagging.” Sunshine will hit theatres sometime this summer.
