NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Senator Entertainment has acquired North American rights to the family drama "The Greatest," starring Pierce Brosnan and Susan Sarandon.

The film centers on a couple who lose their son in a car accident and then learn that the girlfriend he has left behind is pregnant with his child. Shana Feste wrote and directed the drama, which also features rising star Carey Mulligan.

The deal marks Senator's second pickup of a movie that premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The distributor made a splash when it bought the opening-night film, Antoine Fuqua's gritty cop drama "Brooklyn's Finest," which it plans to release this year.
