Dimension Remakes Israeli “Matter of Size”

Dimension Films has acquired English-language remake rights to Israeli sumo wrestling pic “A Matter of Size” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story centers on an overweight Israeli restaurant employee who is turned on to the world of sumo wrestling by several co-workers at the Japanese eatery where he works, and discovers his weight can actually be an advantage.

The comedy-drama was a breakout hit at last month’s Tribeca Film Festival. David Permut will produce the remake.
