AFM 2011: W2 To Remake Finnish Princess


The drama about real-life psychiatric patient Anna Lappalainen was a critical and commercial success in Finland.

Los Angeles – W2 Media has picked up the English-language remake rights to Finnish sleeper hit Princess, a true-life drama about psychiatric patient Anna Lappalainen. Lappalainen, a cabaret dancer in 1930s Finland before being institutionalized, claimed she was really a princess, a member of the British royal family. Princess was a box office hit in Finland, grossing some $3 million.

W2 will fully finance the English-language remake of Princess and is looking to attach an A-list actress in the leading role. Julie Sultan brought the project to W2, who will also handle worldwide sales for the English version of the movie.
