Gallic sales company Films Distribution has sold the Guillaume Canet-Marion Cotillard starrer “Love Me If You Dare” to a handful of territories including the U.K., Japan and Germany.
UGC will distribute the pic in the U.K., New Select will release it in Japan, while Telepool and BMG have taken German rights.
“We’ve received a deluge of offers from other territories,” Film Distribution’s Nicolas Brigaud-Robert said Tuesday
A first film by Yann Samuell, “Love” is about a couple of lifetime friends whose long-standing game of dare gets in the way of their blossoming love for one another.
It was produced by Christophe Rossignon of Nord Ouest Prods.
Film Distribution is handling sales on approximately a dozen films, including the Directors Fortnight selected “Sansa,” starring Roschdy Zem and helmed by Siegfried, and “Feathers in my Head,” by Thomas Their.
Industry vet Jacques Le Glou recently teamed with Films Distribution and is now acting as a consultant to the company following its takeover of his indie label Mercure Distribution.
