Co. to handle worldwide sales for project

Samantha Morton, Peter Dinklage and Peter O’Toole are set to star in Charles Sturridge’s “Lassie,” which starts shooting May 23 in Ireland.

Set in Britain shortly before WWII, it’s the story of a dog sold by her poverty-stricken owners to a duke who lives 500 miles away.

Ed Guiney of Dublin-based Element Films is producing with Sturridge and Francesca Barra, in conjunction with Classic Media and Isle of Man Film.
