People have been talking about Wordplay, Patrick Creadon's doc about Will Shortz, the editor of the infamous New York Times crossword puzzle. Though our own James found it torture to sit through – in no small part because, as he puts it, the film apparently "has all the gravitas of lint" – audiences are responding well (overheard in a line: "It's good. It's Word Wars, but it's not. It's good."), and buyers are interested. According to indieWIRE, reps from four distributors (Picturehouse, Warner Independent, Fox Searchlight and Roadside Attractions) put in face time with the filmmakers yesterday over bacon, eggs, and – what else? – the Sunday puzzle. The ink was reserved for the crossword, however – Cinetic has yet to close a deal on the picture.
