Trimark Pictures has made a high six- figure deal for North American theatrical distribution rights to Dan Rosen's dark comedy "Dead Man's Curve."

Starring Matthew Lillard ("Scream") and Michael Vartan ("The Myth of Fingerprints"), "Curve" is the story of two college students who hatch a plot to take advantage of a school policy that gives a 4.0 grade-point average to students whose roommate commits suicide.

Writer-director Rosen, who was repped by Jeremy Barber of Loeb and Loeb, wrote the Sony Pictures Classics' release "The Last Supper."

Executive produced by Alain Siritzky, Ian Jessel, Pierre Kalfon and Michel Chambat, "Curve" was produced by Michael Amato and Ted Schipper with Jeremy Lew and William Mercer. The film made its debut in the American Spectrum section of the 1998 Sundance Film Festival.

The Paris-based Alain Siritzky Prods. will also produce "Running With Scissors," a teen comedy budgeted at $2.5 million-$3 million with an ensemble cast that includes Sam Rockwell, Steve Zahn, Melissa Joan Hart and Giovanni Ribisi. Director Carlos Brooks will make his feature filmmaking debut.

ASP is selling a slate at the American Film Market that includes "Camouflage," a project written by Billy Bob Thornton ("Sling Blade") and Tom Epperson that will be directed by James Keach. Budgeted at $8 million-$10 million, the picture is in preproduction.
