Screw this! I'm covering Slamdance

It seems that Picturehouse has acquired the rights to the documentary The King Of Kong, currently in competition at the 2007 Slamdance Film Festival. New Line Cinema picked up the worldwide rights.

Get this. The King Of Kong follows a middle school science teacher as he battles a hot sauce mogul for the Guinness World Record on the arcade classic Donkey Kong.

The movie is directed by Seth Gordon and is produced by Ed Cunningham.

Picturehouse will release the documentary this coming summer.

Oh goodness. I certainly hope that my sad little prairie town will be showing this movie at some point.
