LONDON – Terry McMahon's movie Charlie Casanova, featuring Emmett J. Scanlan who is in the running to win this year’s Irish Academy rising star award, will find a home in British and Irish movie houses via Studiocanal.

The French-owned distribution, production and finance banner has taken U.K. and Irish rights to the micro-budget Irish drama that follows a sociopathic Irish yuppie who kills a girl in a hit-and-run before turning to playing cards to decide what to do next.

The movie itself has five nominations for this year’s Irish Film & TV Awards including best film, to be dished out February 11.
