WB grabs ‘Xuxa’ pic

World Brief

Warner Bros. has beaten out several rival U.S. majors to nab global distrib rights to Paulo Sergio de Almeida’s “Xuxa em Popstar,” teen pic starring Brazilian superstar Xuxa Meneghel, and it may invest as a co-producer.

Known simply as Xuxa, the statuesque actress and singer became a household name as the host of an enormously popular children’s show. Two millions tickets were sold to her last film, “Xuxa Requebra,” which was released in January.

Warner purchased both Brazilian and international distrib rights to “Xuxa em Popstar,” which is scheduled to bow locally on Jan. 5, during the summer high season. It advanced the film’s producers 1.6 million reais (about $890,000).
