HOLLYWOOD — Here! Films has acquired North American rights to “Beautiful Boxer” from Arclight Films.
Based on the true story of Thailand’s transgender kickboxer Parinya Charoenphol, the action drama concerns a boy who believes he’s a girl trapped in a boy’s body and sets out to master Thai boxing. Here! plans a fall release.
An official selection in the Panorama section of this year’s Berlin Film Festival, “Beautiful Boxer” was directed and produced by Ekachai Uekrongtham (“Chang & Eng”).
Recent acquisitions for here! include “Callas Forever” and “Merci Docteur Rey.”
