eOne Picks Up U.S. Rights to 'The Grand Seduction'
Brendan Gleeson and Taylor Kitsch star in the comedy that premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.
Entertainment One Films (eOne) has picked up U.S. rights to The Grand Seduction, a Canadian comedy that premiered at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival.
A theatrical release in summer 2014 is being eyed.
Don McKellar directed the movie, which stars Brendan Gleeson and Taylor Kitsch and was produced by Roger Frappier and Barbara Doran.
The story involves a tiny town in need of a doctor in order to secure a much-needed factory contract. When one does show up, the townspeople, led by a fisherman (Gleeson), do everything they can to convince the doctor that their town is a paradise tailor-made for him.
The movie is an English-language remake of a 2003 French-Canadian film named Le grande seduction.
eOne already has the rights for Canada and the U.K.
