SUNDANCE: Searchlight Spends Big For ?Little Miss Sunshine?

?Little Miss Sunshine,? one of the hottest properties at Sundance, was purchased Saturday by Fox Searchlight for more than $10 million, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The film, starring Steve Carell, Alan Arkin, Toni Collette, and Greg Kinnear and directed by first-timers Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton, tells the farcical story of a dysfunctional family that that bands together to enter the youngest daughter in a beauty pageant. This may be the richest deal in festival history; Miramax purchased ?Happy, Texas? for $10 million in 1999.
